No ‘Don 3’ without Priyanka Chopra

There were reports that Priyanka Chopra won’t be seen in the third instalment of ‘Don’. It was said that Jacqueline Fernandez will be seen opposite Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Don 3’. However, in a leading daily, a source close to the production house has denied the reports of PeeCee being replaced in the film.

A source said, “If and when ‘Don 3’ is made, the film will retain the original cast. At the moment, Shah Rukh has announced his choc-a-bloc slate which includes three big-ticket films, while Priyanka will be busy with the second season of ‘Quantico’ and also start work on her next Hindi film.”

The source says that Priyanka’s character is an integral part of the franchise and ‘Don 3’ cannot be made without her.

“The makers are befuddled over the rumours, especially since Farhan Akhtar, who directed the first two parts, is busy with his acting commitments. Given these reasons, it does look like the film will take time to materialise and there are no immediate plans to roll out ‘Don 3’. So, speculations surrounding the star cast have no basis,” added the source.
