It’s official! Ranveer Singh will play the new Don in the third season of the blockbuster franchise. Farhan Akhtar will helm the film.
Farhan Akhtar, the actor-filmmaker-producer, has finally introduced the new Don. Ranveer Singh will take over as the new Don, who is once again the target of the ’11 Mulkon ki police’. Ranveer Singh is introduced to the franchise and its devoted fans in a new teaser.
Farhan captioned the teaser, “A New Era Begins #Don3.” In his tweet, he also named Pushkar Gayatri, but the film would be directed by Farhan himself.
The trailer begins with Ranveer seated in a high-rise structure with his back to the camera. He’s dressed in a leather jacket and boots, and he smokes a cigarette before turning to face the camera and introducing himself as Don.
On Tuesday, Farhan posted a letter on his Instagram account that hinted at a new era for Don. “It was 1978 when the nation witnessed the rage of Don for the first time, with superstar Mr Amitabh Bachchan playing the lead,” the message said. While the first film retains its allure, Excel Entertainment is excited to announce Farhan Akhtar’s Don’s directorial return. With his legendary two-film action franchise with Shah Rukh Khan in 2006 and 2011, the director is prepared to challenge the frontiers of storytelling once more in Don 3.
The time has now come to carry Don’s legacy forward,” he added, “and joining us in this new interpretation will be an actor whose talent and versatility I have long admired.” We hope you will offer him the same kindness and generosity you have shown Mr Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan. Don’s new era begins in 2025. “Keep an eye on this.”
Don featured notable performances by Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, and Boman Irani. The film received Best Asian Film at the Neuchatel International Fantastic Film Festival in 2006. Its sequel was later released in 2011 and was deemed a success. Don 2 included a cameo appearance by actor Hrithik Roshan. Farhan’s film was a remake of the 1978 film Don, which starred Amitabh Bachchan.
