Shah Rukh Khan plays Don, the leader of a ruthless drug mafia in Malaysia. Don’s cleverness has made it virtually impossible for the Indian police to catch him. But eventually, the ever-elusive Don is cornered by the cops. He is seriously injured in a police encounter.
And soon the word spreads that Don is dead.
It is then the chief cop De Silva (Boman Irani) makes his ingenious move. He sends a Don look-alike Vijay, a bumpkin, into Don’s gang. Vijay’s task is to impersonate as Don and help the police catch all the big fish in the dirty business.
While Vijay passes off as Don initially, his partners-in crime, particularly his girlfriend Anita, begins to sense a change in the man. In the meantime, Don comes closer to Roma (Priyanka Chopra) who is working amongst the gangsters for a personal reason.
Things take a turn for the worse after the cop who had sent Vijay on the secret mission is killed. None in the police force knows of Vijay’s mission. On the other hand, the mafia becomes more and more suspicious of their Don. So, Vijay finds himself hunted not just by the gangsters but also by the cops.
Caught between hell and high water, Vijay has only one option – to complete his mission and bring the truth to light. In this struggle, he is fully helped by his sweetheart Roma (Priyanka Chopra) and his friend Jasjeet (Arjun Rampal).
Twenty-eight years after Amitabh Bachchan immortalized the character of a don in Chandra Barot’s movie Don (1978) , Shah
Rukh Khan reprises the role in Farhan Akhtar ’s film ‘Don’…
‘Don’ will not be a scene-to-scene adaptation of the original flick by director Chandra Barot. The remake will be a modern, contemporary version in which SRK, as Don, uses all the state-of-the-art gadgets and technology.
The movie stays loyal to the plot of the original. But it improvises on the treatment of the story through stylish cinematography, crisp editing, innovative direction, high-octane stunts and special effects.
The film will have Shah Rukh doing many dangerous stunts, which includes jumping from a height of 15,000 feet. Shah Rukh performed this stunt under the guidance of Hollywood stunt expert Joe Jennings, who has directed fights for movies like ‘Charlie's Angels’, ‘XXX’ and ‘Air Force One’.
