Shahrukh Khan’s much-awaited sequel of Don finally hit the theatres on 23rd December, 2011. Don 2 has an impressive star cast and amazing stunts to keep the audiences engaged throughout the movie. However, an action packed car chase scene, in particular, has taken the movie buffs on a thrilling ride.

The scene is shot on the busy roads of Berlin, Germany, involving around 67 cars. These cars were especially imported from Korea, including the BMW 5 Series, 2012 Hyundai Sonata, Hyundai Santa Fe and Alfa Romeo MiTo. All the cars can be seen cruising during the pulse racing chase in the streets of Berlin.

The entire sequence took about three weeks to be captured on celluloid, for which the roads were cordoned off. Diversions and alternate ways were made to ensure that the local public did not face any problem during to the shooting of the film. Brandenburg Gate, the area where the United States and Russian Consulates are situated, was used to shoot the climax of this nail-biting scene. Permission to shoot scenes for Hollywood movies at this location has been denied before; however, Don 2 was fortunate enough to make best possible use of the place.

Shahrukh Khan said, “Don 2 chase sequence brings the wow factor to the entire film. It is one of the best sequences to be shot on Indian celluloid. Its grandeur and scale just mesmerises audience." The critics and audiences are on the same page when it comes to Don 2. As a matter of fact, the car chase sequence can irrefutably be ranked among the top action scenes ever filmed in Bollywood.
