Farhan Akhtar confirms Shah Rukh Khan not being a part of the franchise
Farhan Akhtar shared an official note on his Twitter handle. He shared his experience of working with Shah Rukh Khan in two instalments of Don. He further stated that a new actor will be replacing the superstar in Don 3.
His note read, “In 1978, a character created by Salim-Javed and portrayed by Mr. Amitabh Bachchan with effortless elan, captured the imagination of theatregoers across the country. That enigmatic character was Don. In 2006, Don was reimagined and brought to life by Shah Rukh Khan in his own irresistibly charming way. From Don’s sardonic wit to his cool but menacing fury, Shah Rukh embodied his persona. As writer & director, I had a great time creating not one but two, ‘Don’ films with Shah Rukh and both experiences remain very close to my heart (sic).”
The actor further mentioned, “The time has now come to take the legacy of Don forward and joining us in this new interpretation will be an actor whose talent and versatility I have long admired. We hope that you will show him the love you have so graciously and generously shown to Mr Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan. A new era of Don begins in 2025. Watch this space (sic).”
