The film was announced with the original cast reprising their roles, with the exception of Arjun Rampal and Ishaa Koppikar. It was also announced that Lara Dutta and Kunal Kapoor were cast as new characters in the film.

Filming for Don 2 began from October 10, 2010 in Berlin. According to Khan, who also co-produced the film, the city was chosen as location for the film because the film demanded a more realistic backdrop, unlike some of his other films shot in more fairy tale like environments of countries like Switzerland. A 70-member crew from India traveled to the city two-week preparation for the film's shooting. The film was shot at Berlin's prime locations like Brandenburg Gate, the Olympia Stadium, The Gandarmen Market and the East Side Gallery.Khan bulked up for the film and developed a six pack. Khan also experimented with a variety of different looks, including long unkempt hair and a stubble. prepared her body for at least two months and requested the action choreographer that she wanted to do the stunts all by herself. While in Berlin, Khan made a 300-feet jump for a scene. In December 2010, shooting ended in Berlin.

In February 2011, the actors flew to Malaysia for the second phase of the shoot, where a few scenes were shot inside the Malacca Prison with real prisoners. A complete section of the prison block was made available for the shoot. In order to avoid any hitches, special crew T-shirts were made to differentiate crew-members from the prisoners as it was a high security zone.Filming in Malaysia lasted for a month and ended on March 20, 2011.

Khan became the only Indian actor to have successfully shot a film sequence in Germany, a country that is infamous for denying requests of international film shoots. A production executive stated that "Unlike the US, UK and Thailand, it isn’t easy to obtain permission to shoot in Germany. The rules are very strict and in order to be eligible one needs to clear at least 47 points out of 60 Shah Rukh Khan is so famous in Germany and that made a great difference to shoot Don 2 there". Sidhwani said, "We are the first Indian film which has managed to do that. There were certain pre-conditions that we were required to meet and we had to be very careful. Eventually they did open the doors for us. Once we were together on making the film, they proved to be extremely helpful." In the process, he joined Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt to become only the third actor able to obtain filming permission in Germany, after the former actors shot Valkyrie and Inglourious Basterds respectively.

Shahrukh Khan trained with international stunt and fight director Wolfgang Stegemann, who has worked in several high-profile Hollywood films. Wolfgang, who also plays a negative character called Karl in the film, created a special fight style for Khan. He said, "These are powerful and effective to knock off Don's enemies. I had to analyse Mr Khan's motions and find the perfect fight style for him. It is a mix between martial arts, Krav Maga, Wing Chun and Trapping, which has not been practised in Bollywood. It helped him endure long settings of fights together".

In September, 2011, filming resumed in order to shoot a song featuring the two leads.Another song was shot with Khan in Goa in late November, just a month before the film's release. This will be the first of a kind music video where instead of a choreographed song and dance treatment, they have opted to visualise the song as an action sequence. Speaking on this, Akhtar said "Its going to be a first of its kind music video which makes it really exciting to do. Instead of a song and dance treatment, we've opted to visualise the song as an action sequence.. to see Don vanquish his opponents while casually singing the words is surreal but very intriguing".
