    Don in Berlin

    Don 2: Bollywood comes to Berlin.

    Now Bollywood has discovered the benefits that Berlin offers as a film location! Superstar Shah Rukh Khan plays the title role in the blockbuster ‘Don 2’, but one of the supporting roles in this gripping thriller also goes to the city of Berlin. The buzzing German capital provides the perfect setting for exciting chases and bristling suspense. Discover the city of ‘Don 2’ – learn all about the new blockbuster film featuring Shah Rukh Khan plus a host of handy tips on visiting Berlin

    King Khan in Berlin

    The Bollywood star in the German capital.

    Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan visited Berlin in 2008 and 2010 to launch his films ‘Om Shanti Om’ and ‘My Name is Khan’ at the Berlinale film festival. Back then, hundreds of fans came to Berlin to give the Bollywood star a rapturous welcome. In 2010, the fans stood for hours waiting in freezing temperatures and snow in front of the Grand Hyatt hotel, where the press conference was held, and outside the Berlinale Palast. They all wanted to just catch a glimpse at least of this much-loved Bollywood celebrity.
    That same year, Shah Rukh Khan returned to the German capital to film the sequel to ‘Don – The Chase Begins’. When he landed at Tegel Airport, he was greeted by a clamouring reception and besieged by his female fans. The crowds at the airport were incredible, just like for a boy band. Only it was not 14-year-old girls swarming around the superstar screaming to see him, it was primarily grown women. Shah Rukh Khan took time to speak to his fans, signing autographs and posing for photos – the fans were delighted.
    Shah Rukh Khan spent a total of 50 days filming in Berlin with his team, shooting scenes for ‘Don 2 - The King is back’ at famous locations and attractions around the city and causing a great stir. But it wasn’t all work. While filming in the German capital, Shah Rukh Khan celebrated his 45th birthday for which his wife and two children travelled especially from India. After almost two months, the film star left Berlin, but not without showing his gratitude. In Berlin’s golden guestbook he wrote: "Thank you for making us all feel as if we were at our own homes. Love Berlin like a second home now!"
    This year the wait is finally over. King Khan, as he is fondly called in India, will soon be back on the screens in Don 2. The film comes to Indian cinemas on 23 December and the lead parts are not only played by Shah Rukh Khan and his colleagues. A star role also goes to the city of Berlin, which is really showcased at its best. Rumour also has it that Bollywood fans can also look forward to a guest appearance by another Bollywood great: Hrithik Roshan. It is not clear yet whether this is true, and we won’t find out until the actual premiere of the film. They’re keeping us in suspense!
    nika says thanks.

    Rajesh Kumar Singh, Glamsham Editorial [​IMG]

    He is the Don out to conquer Europe after having already conquered the hearts of German women. He is also the badshah of Bollywood whose films have been top dollar earners overseas.


    She is one of the most desirable and beautiful women and the highest paid actress on the Earth, apart from being an Oscar and Golden Globe winner, and the companion of Brad Pitt, the hunky and iconic Hollywood star. She has now turned a film director. Angelina Jolie will present her directorial debut IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY in the Berlinale Special programme of the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival that begins on 9th February 2012. It will be the German premiere of the film that had a limited release in the US last December.

    Shah Rukh Khan will also be in Berlin with his film DON 2-THE RETURN OF THE KING. The film is directed by Farhan Akhtar an apart from SRK, stars Priyanka Chopra, Lara Dutta, and Boman Irani. The film was shot in Berlin and the Berliners, especially the young German ladies, are looking forward to the film's German premiere in Berlinale, marking its official release in Germany.

    Both the films are in the Berlinale Special section of the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale) and the presence of these sizzling hot stars is expected to warm up the proceedings at the festival quite considerably.

    Don2 goes international

    The writer has posted comments on this articleRicha Bhatia, TNN | Feb 1, 2012, 01.39PM IST
    Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's fans from Berlin will witness the return of the King this month.

    Director Farhan Akhtar, producer Ritesh Sidhwani and actors Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra will present their latest venture 'Don 2 - The King is Back' at the Berlin International Film Festival, 'Berlinale', on February 11th at the Friedrichstadt-Palast.

    To celebrate the movie's premiere at the 62nd 'Berlinale', the German Embassy New Delhi is organising an evening with Farhan Akhtar on Thursday, February 2nd.

    Hosted by the acting Ambassador of Germany to India, Mr. Cord Meier-Klodt, the evening will see Farhan Akhtar share some candid experiences from the shooting of the film in Berlin.

    This will be followed by the premiere of a short version of the film, and an interaction with the media. The event has been sponsored by Lapp India.

    The city of Berlin is the main setting for the movie. Shot in prominent locations throughout Berlin, some of the highlights include Alexanderplatz, the Berlin Cathedral, the State Opera, the French Cathedral and Concert Hall at Gendarmenmarkt, as well as the Brandenburg Gate.

    From 9th to 19th February 2012, Berlin will roll out the red carpet for more than 19,000 professional visitors from 115 countries. The public programme of the 'Berlinale' shows about 400 films per year, mostly international or European premieres.

    Films of every genre, length and format find their place in the various sections: international cinema in the Competition, independent and art house in Panorama, films for young audiences in Generation, new discoveries and promising talents from the German film scene in Perspektive Deutsches Kino, avant-garde, experimental and unfamiliar cinematography in the Forum, and an exploration of cinematic possibilities in Berlinale Shorts.
