While speculations and rumours surrounding Don 3 have been doing the rounds for the longest time, a recent development left everyone baffled. Reports suggested that Shah Rukh Khan who headlined the last two movies in the franchise has opted out of the third one and reportedly, Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor have been roped in to step in his shoes. When Zoya Akhtar, who was present for an event was asked to comment on the same, she dodged the questions saying "she is neither SRK, nor Farhan Akhtar or Ritesh Sidhwani."

Now, another report suggested that the reports are false and sources close to Farhan confirmed that Shah Rukh is the face of Don and none have been approached. We, hence, got in touch with Farhan to get some clarification. The busy actor in an exclusive statement to Pinkvilla said, "I’m completely focused on prep for Toofan right now. I have nothing to say about Don." While the actor-producer hasn't denied anything, one can be assured that Don is not happening anytime soon. 

Well, SRK reportedly also walked out of the Rakesh Sharma biopic after his film last movie Zero tanked massively at the box office. The movie also starred Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in lead roles and was directed by Aanand L Rai. 

Meanwhile, it is being known that SRK is taking time and reading several scripts to pick the right project as his next. The superstar doesn't want to disappoint his fans.



Srk has worked so long in the movies that his mannerisms come through in any character he plays. Even in that movie with Alia as a doctor he was very filmy and not very real. His twiches and smiles and movements are all similar. To be honest so does Amitabh baccahans but people have put him on some acting pedestal so be it. I find even him pretty much the same formidable old man with an intimidating voice in all his movies- he even looks exactly the same. Irfan and kangana and konkana even Ranbir and Ranbir and even Varun to some extent way way better in acting

SRK fans getting upset on RS , do you realise RS doesn’t need to promote himself using SRKs name anymore ? He doesn’t need a Don movie in his life. SRK sure is in need of riding the wave for some publicity at this point of time. He probably just wanted to show how much his fans support him.

he obviously won't take Don because of his situation with PC

PR Singh took the Zero Khan head on and defeated his movie. Zero Khan can even keep up with the new guys and now The so called PR Singh is a superstar so how does Zero Khan stand a chance?

With the abundance of truly talented younger actors who are willing to work for lower fees, no producer/director in his right mind would cast SRK in any movie right now. SRK can't get into the skin of a character. No matter what role he plays, the audience still sees SRK's real-life demeanor, mannerisms, and intonation come through. Even prosthetics and VFX can't hide this.

Only Srk Sir can play a role of Don. Any actor except him will ruin this Franchise. We dont accept any actor except SRK Sir in Don3.

SRK is taking time and reading scripts cos he doesn't want to disappoint his fans. He's already done that, over and over!
That's just a politically correct way of saying he doesn't have any offers right now.

They are treating Don like some Bahubali franchise. It’s time for even Srk to do some meaningful cinema at this stage over this.

neither is bahubali..nothing other than marketing

hello there are n number of don movies, Bahubali is one of a kind in many many years, lost 30 years no such movie came and kids of this generation never watched such a movie, so dont compare don with bahubali

PR Singh needs to stay far away from the King. He needs to stop living in his fantasies.

Spare Ranveer from this. Please keep the aging SRK.

Ranveer PR ainwaiye hi hyper. Matlab kuchh bhi.

Don films weren’t well made. Spare Ranveer from this crap.
