Farhan Akhtar's directorial Don starring Shah Rukh Khan became a huge hit just like the original. The film also had a sequel titled Don 2: The Chase Continues leaving us all waiting for the third instalment. With minimal development on the third part, fans were left exasperated. However, seems like there is some good news here.
According to a report in a leading daily, Farhan Akhtar has apparently locked down the script for the movie and has also got an approval from SRK. The daily quoted a source saying, “He had bounced the idea off to SRK, who liked it. Farhan had taken a break from acting and channelised all his energy into developing the script for this film of the Don franchise. He has finally locked the script and things are moving in the right direction.”
The report further reveals that the actor-director will also star in the third instalment. Regarding this, a source revealed to the daily, "Farhan will also act in this film. He will play a desi top cop to Shah Rukh’s Don. Since a portion of the film will be set in India, Farhan will be seen donning the policeman’s uniform in the film.”
However, those who loved Priyanka Chopra as Roma, you are in for a disappointment. If the report to be believed, PeeCee's character won't be needed in Don 3. “The storyline is such that it doesn’t need Priyanka’s character. It’s likely to have a new cast, which will be locked soon," the source added.
The film is expected to go on floors next year and is likely to release in 2020.
