Shah Rukh Khan starred in the remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s Don and gave this pulpy thriller a stylish and modern touch. It became the only remake to have a sequel till date, and fans were excited to see the star return as the king of the dreaded underworld with the third part of the franchise. However, you may be in for a shock as some rumors in the grapevine suggest the actor has walked out of the film and Ranveer Singh is all set to be the new Don! Yes, you read that right!
A source stated, “Khan has opted out of Don 3 for personal reasons and the Zoya Akhtar production franchise is still in the works, but with Khan bowing out, she is left without the main lead. We hear she has approached her favorite actor Ranveer Singh for Khan’s spot and the two are still in talks.”
It continued, “Not just this, if Ranveer Singh signs on, Zoya will consider another favorite of hers- Katrina Kaif as female lead.” As much as we love Singh and Kaif, nobody can recreate the charm and the aura that Khan and Priyanka Chopra did with the first two films in the franchise. It seems after being bogged down by multiple failures in the last three years, SRK is being immensely careful and selective with his next film.
