Priyanka Chopra goes to jail!

srk_piggy_fnl_5211_fFor the entire team of Don 2, shooting in a Malaysian jail was an experience that no one has forgotten till date, so much so, that even the thought itself gives them shivers.

It was Farhan Akhtar’s idea to shoot in the Malaysian jail. As a director, he was very keen to shoot the film in a real international jail as it would be more authentic and gripping visually. Farhan was skeptical about shooting, but was stunned at the strange and eerie silence of the place.

Priyanka Chopra was the most worried to shoot at the jail as there’s a common myth around it. It is said that every prisoner at the jail is capable of hypnotizing. So, all the crew members were very worried and kept on discussing that over and over again.

Priyanka Chopra informs, “I had never been to a fully functional prison before we started shooting for Don 2 in the Malacca prison. Malacca was very exciting yet somewhat spooky!   The fact that it was a fully functioning prison with real live criminals inside, just added a lot of authenticity to the scenes that we shot. There were a lot of rules that we had to follow while shooting. Even though we never came in contact with the inmates, our movements inside the prison were restricted, so in a sense it was like being locked up.”

She goes on to add, “I really wanted to meet some of the inmates because I wanted to test the theory that they could hypnotise you if you made eye contact. Since, I play a cop in the film, I didn’t have to wear the uniform but Shah Rukh Khan and Boman Irani did and they looked really cool. I loved the bright Orange colour of the uniform. All in all, it was a memorable experience.”

Don 2 is the first ever film to be shot in Malacca prison and a complete section of the prison block was made available for the shoot. About 700 prisoners were air-lifted and moved to another cell to accommodate the filming.
