Addressing the media at Patna, SRK, whose forthcoming movie is inspired by the veteran superstar’s 1978 flick 'Don', said, "Amit ji is cent per cent Don and I have full respect for him.
"We have been inspired by Amitabh Bachchan's Don and filmed Don 2 - The King Is Back to get accepted by the new generation."
Both 'Ra.One' and 'Don 2' are very close to my heart, says Shahrukh
This year the actor worked simultaneously in actions films 'Ra.One' and 'Don 2'.
Recently SRK confessed that both these films are very much close to his heart. “Ra.One is more of a superhero film; it's a different kind of action while Don 2 is grittier, fast, leaner and meaner kind of film."
"Now I do feel like doing a romantic film. Maybe earlier I didn't," the actor added.
Farhan is happy with the response to 'Don2'
Meanwhile, Farhan is quite upbeat as the second installment of 'Don' is already getting good response before release.
"I know, it sounds quite weird for me to talk about my own work but from whatever I have heard from people who have seen the film, there are some very positive all around reactions that are visible.
"Even if I have to step aside from the film and forget that I have directed the film while commenting in as unbiased way as possible, I can say that there is a lot of positive energy involving Shahrukh and people are really loving him as the character of Don,” said Farhan.
'Don 2' has hit the theatres today.
