Filmmaker and actor Farhan Akhtar has been working for a long time on the script of the third installment of ‘ Don. ‘ There was no formal confirmation on the same thing, though.
Farhan Akhtar produced, wrote and directed the first two instalments of Don, both of which featured Shahrukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra-Jonas in lead roles. Now, we hear that the filmmaker may rope in actor Ranbir Kapoor as the lead in the third instalment of the franchise.
It is to be noted that after the failure of ‘Zero’, Shahrukh Khan did not announce any new project. Sources said that the superstar apparently wanted to keep himself away from the film for a while now.However, reports are on that Khan is apparently in talks with Rajkumar Hirani for his next. The film will be directed by Hirani and produced under the banner of Red Chillies. And if the said thing happens, both the actors will be seen swapping their directors for their next. Ranbir has worked with Hirani in 2018-released ‘Sanju’, which turned out to be one of the highest-grossers of the year.
Ranbir Kapoor is currently shooting for ‘Brahmastra’ starring Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and Akkineni Nagarjuna in lead roles. The film is produced by Karan Johar and directed by Ayan Mukerji. On the other hand, Khan is in the news for the second season of his chat show ‘Ted Talks’ which is all set to go on air.
