Arjun Rampal snubs ‘Don 2’ over differences with Farhan
Mumbai: Arjun Rampal seems to be on quite a high ever since his last flick ‘Raajneeti’ turned out to be a super-hit. The actor, who was apparently dependent on his friend’s recommendations for work earlier, is now throwing fits on directors. And it’s none other than his one time good pal Farhan Akhtar who is bearing the brunt of Arjun’s sudden success. Believe it or not, but Arjun has walked out of ‘Don 2’ after developing creative differences with Farhan.
As per reports, Arjun walked out of the film after Farhan refused to make changes in his role for the sequel.
Nevertheless, the two actors remain to be friends. Talking about the relationship between the two, an insider told a news daily, “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.”
However, even though Arjun won’t be seen in the sequel, his character hasn’t been changed. “The team of the film is now hunting for a suitable replacement for Arjun. The iconic role of Jasjit, played by legendary character artiste Pran, was essayed by Arjun in the remake of the original,” asserts the source.
