Excel Entertainment presents Don: The Chase Begins Again, directed by Farhan Akhtar, is a remake of the blockbuster 1978 film, Don. The film was released in India on 20 October 2006 and it was also simultaneously released internationally.

The film stars Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Arjun Rampal, Ishaa Koppikar and Kareena Kapoor in a guest appearance. Eighty percent of the movie was shot in Malaysia, and was filmed around the tropical Langkawi island as well as the Petronas Twin Towers and the Jalan Masjid India area, which is the "little India" of Kuala Lumpur. Akshay Kumar was offered the role of Jasjit but he rejected it saying he might have accepted if he had been offered the part of Don. Shahrukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra underwent special martial arts training for their roles in the movie.

For some time now, Priyanka’s shooting schedule has been choc-a-bloc. In fact, her packed agenda is said to have taken a toll on her health too. Earlier this month, the Dostana actor reportedly couldn’t perform at Mumbai Police annual festival, Umang, since she was feeling too weak.

“Yes, the last four-five months have been very hectic. Actually, all my films’ dates clashed simultaneously since Barfi! got a bit delayed. It was supposed to be completed last year itself. So all the dates were reshuffled to this year,” she says.

The film was selected to be screened at the Berlin Film Festival.
