The national award winning actor has decided to opt out of Farhan Akhtar's Don 2, over creative differences with the filmmaker-actor.
If reports are to be believed, the separation is amicable and both of them continue to be on good terms.
A source tells Mumbai Mirror, "Arjun and Farhan are extremely close to each other. Arjun’s character in Don was an integral one and was appreciated by everyone. After Don, Arjun worked in Rock On with Farhan’s company and his role received a lot of critical praise. Arjun was quite excited about working in the sequel to Don. But on account of some problems cropping up at the script level, Arjun and Farhan have parted ways."
Now the hunt is on for Arjun's replacement. The role of Jasjit, played by legendary character artiste Pran, was essayed by Arjun in the remake of the original.
