I was scared to do stunts myself in 'Don 2': Shah Rukh Khan

New Delhi, Dec 20 (PTI) Indian cine actor Shah Rukh Khan is seen performing some daring action sequences in his upcoming Hindi film 'Don 2', but the superstar says he was initially sceptical and scared to do the stunts, especially the one in which he had to jump off a 300-foot building. "I was very scared to do the stunts. I did have a body double but there are certain stunts that I did myself. I had to jump from a building and when I was standing on the edge I wondered, 'why am I doing this and not some romantic film?'. "But (the film's director) Farhan (Akhtar) helped me a lot. He has skydived some 99 times and that is amazing. In the end it was fun," said Shah Rukh, who was in the Capital last night to promote the film. SRK had international stunt director Wolfgang Stegemann of the 'Inglourious Bastards' and 'Valkyrie' fame choreograph the action sequences for him in this film. 'Don 2' is packed with guns and girls but SRK says he only makes those films which his children can understand and enjoy. The 46-year-old actor, who is all set to reprise the role of a notorious criminal in the film, says he makes sure that he does not do films which may have a negative impact on children. "I do films that my children can watch and understand. I have not used foul language that may have ill-effects on children. Children nowadays are very smart, because they have access to the internet and all kinds of programmes on TV. So it is important for me as a father to choose my films responsibly. "Don 2 is an action film and an entertaining one. I don't think after watching this every child would want to be a Don. I don't think children will imitate," Shah Rukh said. The actor also said that he has played negative characters in his films but in real life he tries to be on the right side all along. "I have always believed in being on the right side of life. I do make a lot of mistakes, but all my mistakes have taught me a lot. I don't think I have ever committed a major mistake in life." 'Don 2: The Chase Continues' also stars Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani, Lara Dutta, Kunal Kapoor and will hit the theatres on December 23. PTI
