It is confirmed. Bollywood beauty Priyanka Chopra is all set to reprise her role of femme fatale Roma in the sequel to Farhan Akhtar's 2006 Don-The Chase Begins Again.
Though it was always on cards that Shah Rukh Khan would feature in Don 2 which is expected to pick up from where the remake of the Amitabh Bachchan starrer Don left, there was always mystery around the presence of the leading lady in the film.
However, Chopra, who recently won the national award for the best actress for her role in Fashion, has confirmed her presence in the sequel.
"Yes, I am doing Don 2. Ever since I worked in the first movie, I was looking forward to being on board for the sequel as well. It would be good to be a part of Don 2 as it is an action thriller," Chopra told PTI from the US where she is currently shooting with Ranbir Kapoor for Siddharth Anand's Anjaana Anjaani.
Chopra reportedly learnt martial arts for her role of revenge thursty Roma in the film, who tries to woo Don, played by Shah Rukh, to avenge the death of her sister.
Her recent release Pyaar Impossible may have failed to take off at the box office but the 27-year-old actress is looking forward to an eventful year ahead. She is busy wrapping up Anjaana Anjaani and will begin shooting for Vishal Bharadwaj's next film after Kaminey.
