Incidentally, Akhtar is writing the script of a forthcoming movie, ‘Don’, which is a re-make of earlier Big B starrer. The movie is being directed by his son, Farhan Akhtar. Akhtar said, “The theme of the story will be the same as the original and only minor changes have been made to the script. “ About the songs of the movie, Akhtar informed that two songs would be new, while rest of the songs in the movie would be from the old Don.
