Katrina Kaif had always had a long-standing desire of contributing in some way to a film's post-production. While editing the film, Farhan Akhtar let Katrina edit a small portion to fulfill her wish.
About Don 2 Farhan Akhtar says "The first film was my father's vision. He had written the original Don, along Salim, featuring Amitabh Bachchan. But Don 2 is being written by fans only. These are yours truly and two new enthusiastic boys Ameet and Amreesh who came to me with their ideas on how the story can be carried forward. I've thrown my ideas at them. Don 2 is basically being written by three Don fans who are having a ball carrying the story forward." About the exclusion of his father Farhan explains, "He cannot be a fan of Don because he conceived it."

Shah Rukh Khan who plays the role of "Don", uses a dialogue while making a bargain with Detective Malik - "Make me an offer I can't refuse". This is a direct modification of the famous dialogue "I'll make him an offer he can't refuse" by Marlon Brando in The Godfather movie. Marlon Brando played the role of "Don" Vito Corleone in that movie.
