Farhan Akhtar digs tall women
Shah Rukh Khan’s health problem has just claimed its first casualty. Farhan Akhtar’s Don sequel, which was supposed to start at the end of the year, has been postponed. Says Farhan, “With Shah Rukh’s dates being a problem now, I don’t know when I’ll be able to start Don 2. I’m very clear that it will be made only with Shah Rukh and Priyanka Chopra. Let’s see when it happens.”
Instead of Don 2, Farhan is now planning to direct a romantic film. “It won’t be a teenybopper romance, but a mature love story. I hope to start it after I finish acting in my new film, Kartik Calling Kartik, for which Deepika Padukone has just been signed.”
Farhan explains why it had to be only Deepika for this venture. “We needed a very beautiful heroine… in fact, we needed a stunner.” Kartik Calling Kartik starts shooting in April.
It was quite evident that Deepika is taller than Farhan, but he’s absolutely fine with that. “I’ve always looked up to women anyway. It was the script that demanded Deepika, not me,” he says.
