Celebrate Bollywood at the Castro with superstar Shah Rukh Khan (SRK - hotter than ever!), and Priyanka Chopra, in Farhan Akhtar's blockbuster for the 21st century Don . SRK reinvents Amitabh Bachchan's iconic role as the Indian James Bond who finds himself on the wrong side of the law. The film is driven by a thrilling narrative, stylized action sequences, and dazzling dance numbers.
Farhan Akhtar (1974- ) is the son of renowned Indian lyricist/poet Javed Akhtar (Sholay) and screenwriter Honey Irani. His own penchant for writing caused him to drop out of college and for almost two years he did nothing but watch movies trying to identify the intricacies of film writing and direction. He then worked within the film industry to learn the craft: with Pankaj Parshar; for Script Shop; and on Shankar Mahadevan's music video Breathless .
Selected filmography: Don (2006), Dil Chahta Hai ( Do Your Thing ) (2001).
