After Big B And SRK, Ranveer Singh To Play Don

MUMBAI, (IANS) – Bollywood’s livewire actor Ranveer Singh has been named as the new ‘Don’ and will be seen in Farhan Akhtar’s ‘Don 3’.

Farhan Akhtar, who directed Don (2006) and Don 2 (2011), both starring the Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan in the titular role, said work on the film will begin in 2025.

The character of Don was written by Farhan’s father Javed Akhtar along with his then-creative partner Salim Khan, the father of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan. 

Farhan’s note read, “It was 1978 when the nation witnessed the rage of Don for the first time with superstar Mr. Amitabh Bachchan playing the lead. While the first film continues to hold its charm, Excel Entertainment is delighted to announce the directorial homecoming of Farhan Akhtar’s Don. With a legacy firmly established through his iconic two-film action franchise with Shah Rukh Khan in 2006 and 2011, the director is set to redefine the boundaries of storytelling once again in Don 3.”

He added, “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.”

Every decade has witnessed a new leap into action and adventure with a redefined version of the beloved franchise, and it is almost a matter of national concern who will be taking the baton ahead. It is safe to say that Don has always been essayed by the most legendary and versatile talent through the generations. While Mr. Bachchan was known for his ‘angry young man’ image, in his iconic portrayal of Don, Shah Rukh Khan was seen transitioning from his lover boy identity into the role of this charismatic villain.
