In the one-km long rally SRK look-alike Shahnawaz Khan was dressed up the way the 46-year-old actor dresses up as the ultra-classy villainous Don in the film.
Surrounded by members of the fan club clothed in police uniform, a band party played hit numbers from Don 2 and also from other SRK films as cars, bikes and banners bearing King Khan's hit dialogues added to the fanfare. More than 200 members of the fan club booked an auditorium at a multiplex and watched the morning show of the Farhan Akhtar directed 3D sequel to the 2006 action thriller.
The film's distributors and theatre owners say Don 2, which also stars Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani and Lara Dutta, has opened to packed halls across the city. In this sequel, the wicked and debonair Asian underworld Don, played by Khan, has his sights set on European domination by fighting against the existing European underworld and law enforcement agencies.
Don 2 also marks SRK's return as villain. His anti-hero performances in films like Darr (1993), Baazigar (1993) and Anjaam (1994), where he played an obsessive lover had received critical acclaim. SRK's last film Ra.One, a sci-fi released during this Diwali, had received mixed reviews and an average box-office performance.
