Shah Rukh Khan Back As Don 3 In Farhan Akhtar’s Directorial?
As per latest Bollywood news, Farhan Akhtar has put his film of life saga, Jee Le Zara on a pause due to date issues between the three female actors, Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif, and Alia Bhatt.
Meanwhile, the filmmaker has started to work on a new script in the due course of time. And now, we have came to know that the script that Farhan Akhtar has started working on is Don 3.
“Don is a subject close to everyone at Excel. The team has been trying to crack and develop an idea for Don 3 for a while now, but the same has been put on the back burner time and again due to a lack of novelty factor. But the team has finally scummed upon an idea that’s exciting and will take the franchise to the next level. Farhan has started writing the script and will give narration to his Don also known as SRK, once the screenplay is locked,” a source revealed.
“Like always, Don 3 is still in the early stages and the future of the project will definitely depend on what shape the screenplay finally takes, but yes, it’s confirmed that Farhan Akhtar has started work on Don 3 script. Unlike the last few attempts to make a part 3, the idea this time around is too exciting to let go of, and everyone around is giving more than 100 percent to this project,” the source added.
According to the source, Farhan had discussed the idea of Don 3 with his father Javed Akhtar, the real and original creator of Don (1978). The 2006 film Don starring Shah Rukh Khan was an official remake of the Amitabh Bachchan’s classic, which was eventually spun into an independent franchise with Don 2.
It has been very long since Don 2 was released, and the fans of the franchise have been waiting for the makers to announce the sequel. While both Farhan and Ritesh Sidhwani have time and again opened up about their plans on Don 3, there has not been a formal announcement on the same yet. With Jee Le Zara being postponed, it seems that Farhan has finally acted onto the wish list of all the Don fans, who are waiting for the return of their King of Bollywood aka SRK.
