Don 2 is a 2011 Indian action crime film directed by Farhan Akhtar and co-written by him along with Ameet Mehta and Amrish Shah. The film is produced by Excel Entertainment and Reliance Entertainment. It is a sequel to the 2006 film, Don: The Chase Begins Again and stars Shahrukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra in lead roles while Om Puri, Lara Dutta and Kunal Kapoor play supporting characters; Hrithik Roshan appears in a cameo appearance. The plot of the film continues from the end of the first one, starting in Malaysia and moving to Europe where Don, now the king of the Asian underworld, aims to take over the European drug cartel. The film marks Farhan Akhtar’s return to direction after a gap of nearly five years. It was filmed in India, Thailand, Germany, Malaysia and Switzerland.

Prior to its release, Don 2 faced controversies regarding copyright concerns. The release of the film was carried out on 23 December 2011 by Reliance Entertainment, in both 2D and 3D formats, which included the dubbed versions in Tamil and Telugu. Upon release, while Indian critics gave positive to mixed reviews, overseas film critics praised it. Don 2 has been widely appreciated for its action, direction and cinematography with Shahrukh Khan receiving accolades for his performance, though criticism has been generated regarding its pace and music. It was showcased at the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival.

Made on a budget of 70 crore (US$13.97 million), Don 2 went on to break multiple box-office records in India and overseas, including highest opening day grosser ever on a non-holiday Friday and the highest grossing Bollywood film overseas in 2011. A week after its theatrical run, Box Office India declared the film a “hit” in India, and in the second week, a “blockbuster” overseas. Don 2 became the fourth highest-grossing Bollywood film of all time, and earned a worldwide gross revenue of 210 crore (US$41.9 million) from its Hindi version alone during the first phase of release. The film fetched several awards at popular award ceremonies including two Filmfare Awards for Best Sound Design and Best Action.
