Farhan Akhtar Squashes All DON 3 Rumors! Says the Sequel Is Not Happening!

Alright, listen up freaks! Yesterday we reported that Farhan Akhtar has finally down the script for 'Don 3' which has been in works for a very long time. The last movie in the franchise came out in 2011 for god sakes, can we get a sequel already?

But, taking to the chaotic online world called Twitter, where people usually moan and cheer for what they want and what they don't want, director Farhan Akhtar had made clear not to spread false rumors about 'Don 3', cause he believes that it's not fair to raise expectations of the film's fanbase via false news. Check out his tweet: 

"Request those who conjure up news about #Don3 without any fact checking to please refrain. It is not fair to raise expectations of the films fanbase via false news." - @FarOutAkhtar

So, the film is not happening, at least for now. But, I still believe in Farhan that someday he will officially announce the film when he's ready with the script and the cast. Till then, let's hope for the best!

Farhan Akhtar Has Finally Locked Down the Script for DON 3!

The rebooted 'Don' franchise is the most celebrated not only amongst SRK's fans but also between general audience and ever since 'Don 2', fans have been eagerly waiting for its third installment with Shah Rukh Khan again playing the anti-hero. Though Farhan and Ritesh Sidhwani had earlier said that they are working on the script, it is now reported that Farhan has locked the final script of the film.

According to an anonymous report, Farhan Akhtar has apparently locked down the script for the movie and has got an approval from Badshah Khan as well. The report quoted a source saying, “He had bounced the idea off to SRK, who liked it. Farhan had taken a break from acting and channelized 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.”

But, as we reported a few weeks back, Priyanka's character Roma will not be a part of the film as her services will not be needed this time. “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 report further reveals that the actor-director will also star in the film, "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.”

Expected to go on floors from mid-2019 the film will hit the big screen in 2020.

Deepika Padukone to Replace Priyanka Chopra in 'DON 3'!?

Last week we reported that 'DON 3' is in works and producers Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani are pumped for their upcoming project. Most likely the film's production will commence next year and the producers are finalizing locations in Malaysia, Abu Dhabi and Dubai for the movie. 

But, it is now being rumored that a newcomer will replace Priyanka Chopra as the lead actress and also as Don’s love interest. It is also being speculated that 'xXx: Return of Xander Cage ' actress Deepika Padukone is strongly being considered for the role.

Well, it's disheartening to not see Priyanka Chopra as the "Jungli Billi" but Deepika seems to be a much better fit. Director and Producer Farhan Akhtar recently spoke on the sixth anniversary of 'DON 2' and stated the following about the sequel “It will happen sooner than you know as we have started working on the script and the story. I think we need to crack the story as the responsibility is more (to get it right for the third part). With the next film in ‘DON’ franchise, we won’t take that much time, we will make it fast.”

'DON 3' to Start Production Very Soon!

  

'Don' and 'Don 2' were smash hits back in 2006 and 2011 and fans have been eagerly waiting for the third installment in the franchise as the makers were entirely iffy about making another sequel. But, rumors say that the makers finally started working on the script and are expected to give the final narration to Shah Rukh Khan in the next few months.

A source close to the production said “We have locked the basic idea of the film and shared it with Shah Rukh Khan. The story this time around is set in the Middle East and a major chunk of the film would be shot in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The script is currently being worked on and we plan to go on floors sometime next year.”

Talking about Priyanka Chopra, the source said, “Since the story is set in a different region, it doesn’t warrant her character. We shall decide on the final casting of the film once the final script has been locked.”

When asked if 'Don 3' will be Shah Rukh Khan’s next film after 'Zero', the source said, “The two scripts that he is considering currently include 'Salute' and 'Don 3'. There is a huge possibility of 'Salute' going on floors before 'Don 3'. He shall announce his next film only after finishing the shoot of 'Zero'.”

What do you think guys? Are you excited for 'Don 3'? Comment down below and let us know right NOW!
