It is certain that there will be a huge crowd of his squealing, screaming, and swooning female fans who will brave the Berlin chill and snow to have a glimpse of their heartthrob. In 2010 when the King came to Berlin with MY NAME IS KHAN, it was rumoured that the tickets for his film’s show were sold in black. There will be a repeat show of DON 2 next day noon at reduced prices (9 Euros) at the same venue. The 2 D Hindi version of the film will be screened with English sub-titles. The dubbed German version will be released later on 16th February, 2012, which will mark the film’s release in the other language versions in overseas territories like Russia, Germany, China, France, Israel, and Turkey.

The Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale) officials are expecting a huge rush of SRK fans in Berlin. They are treating his presence as THE event of this year’s festival. Expecting a kind of a mob frenzy, generally associated with rock stars, they have refused to disclose the name of the hotel where SRK will be put up. It should be Ritz Carlton in all probability. The Berlinale web site also has a special Q&A page to answer the queries of SRK fans and to provide information about ticket sales etc.
