Zoya Akhtar finally reacts on rumours of Ranveer Singh replacing Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Don 3’
We all know that Farhan Akhtar‘s ‘Don’ franchise is synonymous with Shah Rukh Khan. Together, they have taken this franchise to another level and everyone is eager to know when its third instalment will be out. Recently, a leading daily reported that Shah Rukh Khan has walked out of ‘Don 3’ and filmmaker Zoya Akhtar is contemplating to cast Ranveer Singh in it. Interestingly, Zoya has finally reacted to these reports.
At a recent media interaction, when quizzed about her collaboration with Ranveer Singh for ‘Don 3‘, Zoya said, “No, no. That’s absolute nonsense.” When asked to comment on the film’s status, the ‘Gully Boy’ director went on to add, “Na toh main Farhan Akhtar hoon, na hi main Shah Rukh Khan ya Ritesh Sidhwani hoon (Neither am I Farhan Akhtar nor am I Shah Rukh Khan or Ritesh Sidhwani).”
Well, from Zoya’s reply, it can be said that she has got nothing to do with the ‘Don’ franchise. On the other hand, our sources reveal that contrary to Ranveer replacing Shah Rukh, ‘Don 3’ will, in fact, see both of them teaming up. Our source informed, “Ranveer Singh is being spoken to, but for a different role altogether. It won’t be ‘Don’ as SRK still remains that character. There’s another important role which is one of the prime antagonists in the film that Farhan wanted a young actor for. Initially, they had thought of Arjun Kapoor but now, after a few spates of flops, it’s RS they want.”
Well, we hope the makers of this franchise make an announcement very soon and end all the speculations.
