10 Aug - While many would like to see Shah Rukh Khan returning as Don in the third instalment of the franchise, director Farhan Akhtar's recent announcement seem to extinguish that hope.

In a statement released via social media after teasing fans with a clip announcing "Don 3" and the words, "A New Era Begins", Farhan stated, "In 1978, a character created by Salim-Javed and portrayed by 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."

Stressing that he had a great time working with the Bollywood star in the two movies, he continued, "The time now has 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 same 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."

While he did not mention any names, many speculated that Shah Rukh Khan will be replaced by Ranveer Singh. Many also stated that Farhan should not have titled it "DON 3" if he is to change the actor, and that it should be a reboot instead of another sequel.
