Don 2 in legal trouble after two years
Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar who hailed over the success of the Shah Rukh - Priyanka starrer Don 2 are now a victim of legal controversy wherein the producers have been accused of criminal breach of trust. According to the complainant, Nariman Films who have originally produced Don, they had given the rights of Don to Farhan Akhtar only till 2009. Thus, Don 2 which released in 2011 was ideally against their contract. Nariman Films therefore filed a civil suit alleging Don 2 of violation of copyright laws as elements of the original Don like the tune, characters, parts of the script; songs etc. were used in the sequel.
But the case was dismissed back then owing to the fact that multiplexes and theatres had already been booked for the release.  However, recently on Thursday, the magistrate asked the police to continue the investigation and passed an order under Section 202 of the Criminal Procedure Code wherein an FIR was asked to file to carry out the investigation and the police was asked to submit the report.  The complaint has been filed against Red Chillies, Reliance Entertainment, Baba Arts, Bipin Salva and others involved in the second installment of Don.
