Actor Boman Irani, 51, is expanding his graph with the much-anticipated sequel to Shah Rukh Khan starrer Don. “Don has become quite a canvas. It’s (Don 2) a marvellously mounted, huge film,” says Irani, who reprises his role as the antagonist Vardhaan in the Part II.

“We never thought of Don 2 while we made Don. I hope Don 3 is also made … in fact there should be a Don 3. It’s such an adventure making this kind of film,” says the actor, who feels playing a baddie is “a big stretch” for him.

The sequel to the 2006 thriller, Don - The Chase Begins, which was a modern day adaptation of the Amitabh Bachchan starrer Don (1978), the film will see Irani’s character get a twist.

Boman"Vardhaan is cold, cunning and deceitful. We wanted him to look more evil and menacing now. So I grew a beard for that one," he says, before revealing he also had to lose weight for the flick.

“I lost about 12 kgs for the role. I lost about 8-9 kgs for Don 1, too. For me, it’s difficult losing even 10gms. It’s a task for a person like me, who dreams about food even when he is awake,” says the actor, who also promises a “lot of action” in the movie. After Don 2, it’s Munnabhai 3 on his mind. “Things are on the cards. Let’s see how it goes but things will happen.”
