After long anticipation and much discussion, finally producer Ritesh Sidhwani officially announced that the production of the third part of Shah Rukh Khan’s action-packed thriller movie, ‘Don’ has begun. Although, the film is still in its script-writing phase, producer and director Farhan Akhtar is currently writing the film’s script. But disappointingly, various news sources have reported that Shah Rukh Khan will not be joining the cast of ‘Don 3’.

Is Shah Rukh really not in 'Don 3'?

Various recent reports suggest that, Shah Rukh Khan will not join the cast of ‘Don 3’. And, various actors are being considered for the main role.

Who is being considered to play the role of Don in 'Don 3'?

According to various media outlets, various actors are auditioning for the role of Don 3, and Ranveer Singh is one of those actors. But now it is known that after various auditions, and consideration, Ranveer Singh has been confirmed for the role of Don instead of Shahrukh Khan.

Why was Ranveer Singh selected as the main character?

After Shah Rukh’s exit, the makers of ‘Don 3’ were looking for a suitable actor, who could take the franchise forward. On the other hand, Ranveer Singh has a good relationship with Excel Entertainment and has been seen in several of their box office hits including Excel Entertainment’s romantic film Dil Dhadakne Do in 2015 and Excel Entertainment’s musical romance film Gully Boy in 2019.

The entertainment channel also reported that Shah Rukh Khan has also been informed about the news.
