The King Khan of Bollywood has begun filming for his latest action-thriller Don 2 in Berlin. Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Lara Dutta and Farhan Akhtar are in Germany for the filming of the movie and they are in love with Berlin.

Shahrukh has quite a following in Germany, to add to that his fans have descended on the town of Berlin, to catch a glimpse of their favourite star, prompting Shahrukh to joke, "You will have problems getting rid of all the Indians again."

Billed as an Indo-Germain production Medienboard Berlin Brandenburg is financially supporting Don 2, and Shahrukh hopes that Don 2 will begin a new love affair between Bollywood and Berlin, and encourage millions of Indians to visit the beautiful city.

In the movie, Shahrukh Khan’s character, the elusive don, will be wanted by the police of 132 countries, against the 11 countries in the first film. The sequel retains its original cast of Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani, and includes some new names like Lara Dutta, Sameera Reddy and Kunal Kapoor.

'Don 2' will have deadlier stunts and chases than 'Don', featuring famous Berlin landmarks, including the great Cathedral, and a car chase through the streets of Berlin around Checkpoint Charley. After filming a scene at a building near Berlin’s TV tower, Shahrukh had tweeted, "Just did an over 300 feet base jump for Don... because you all make me believe I can fly,"

The film will release in 2011.
