In a surprising revelation, producer Ritesh Sidhwani has officially confirmed the much-anticipated third installment of the action-packed thriller franchise, Don. As fans eagerly await details about the film, there has been speculation regarding Shah Rukh Khan’s involvement in Don 3.
According to Entertainment Times, reliable sources indicate that the film’s producer and director, Farhan Akhtar, is currently immersed in crafting the script for this highly awaited project. However, amidst the buzz, rumors have been circulating that SRK may not reprise his iconic role as Don in this installment.
Recent reports suggest that Ranveer Singh, among a select few actors, has been in contention to step into Khan’s shoes and portray the enigmatic character of Don. In an exciting development, a trusted source revealed to Entertainment Times that Ranveer has been officially confirmed to play the titular character in Don 3.
Following SRK’s departure from the franchise, the makers of Don 3 were determined to find a suitable replacement who could uphold the legacy of Don and do justice to the iconic role. Ranveer, known for his charismatic performances and versatility, has been a favored collaborator with Excel Entertainment, having delivered remarkable performances in their successful films such as Dil Dhadakne Do and Gully Boy, according to reports from News18.
It appears that the filmmakers have immense faith in Ranveer’s ability to step into the shoes of Don and bring a fresh perspective to the character. Koimoi reports that a promotional video confirming the announcement has already been filmed and is being expedited for release.
While Khan’s departure from the franchise may have disappointed some fans, the news of Ranveer’s involvement has generated a new wave of excitement. Movie enthusiasts eagerly await the official confirmation from the filmmakers, who are said to be planning a grand announcement to make the news public.
It is worth noting that this development comes at a time when SRK and Salman Khan dedicated an entire post-credit sequence in Pathaan to highlight how the “new boys” cannot fill their shoes. As King Khan bids farewell to the iconic role, the void left behind is not only significant but also immensely demanding.
Don 3 promises to be a captivating addition to the popular franchise, featuring a compelling storyline, high-octane action sequences, and thrilling twists and turns. With Ranveer potentially leading the pack, audiences can anticipate a new dimension to the Don series, infused with his unique style and energy.
