Amrish Shah, co-writer of Don 2, believes in coming out with original and contemporary story ideas, Breaking the mould of stereotype storytelling, he has gone on to experiment with a variety of subjects. “I had thought of a sequel while watching Don. Don 1 had a different ending, where the bad guy lives on while the good one gets killed. My story idea emerged from there and I told it to Farhan. He liked it and we went ahead with it,”says Amrish.Earlier, in 2006, Amrish had made a documentary on Mother Teresa titled, Beatification Of Mother Teresa, which was later showcased at the Cannes Film Festival, receiving acclaim from an international audience.
