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'.”
