Arjun Rampal Opted Out from Don 2

After doing a fondly remembered character in Shahrukh Khan’s Don, Arjun Rampal has decided to keep himself out in the sequel of the movie, Don 2 because of creative differences between Arjun Rampal and Farhan Akhtar, director of Shahrukh Don.

Now, the production house, Excel Entertainment, is now looking for another actor to replace Arjun. Initially, Arjun was part of the film, but later on both Arjun and Farhan developed creative differences so they decided to mutual part ways. A source said,

“Arjun and Farhan are extremely close to each other. Arjun’s character in Don was an integral one and was appreciated by everyone.

After Don, Arjun worked in Rock On with Farhan’s company and his role received a lot of critical praise. Arjun was quite excited about working in the sequel to Don. But on account of some problems cropping up at the script level, Arjun and Farhan have parted ways.”

Arjun also confirmed the news by tweeting

“Hey Guys, Yes it is true won’t be part of Don 2. Wish the team all the success I am sure it will be a super film”.

When contacted with Excel Entertainment, the spokesperson said,

“Don 2 embarks on a new journey and the script requires some fresh characters to be introduced. This means that there will be new actors playing these parts.”

Finally let’s see, who steps into Arjun’s shoes, that is something we will have to wait for… Watch this space for updates.
