Ranveer Singh to Take Over Iconic Don Role in Upcoming Sequel

Farhan Akhtar Announces Exciting Casting Change for Don 3


Bollywood Mascot: In a surprising turn of events, Bollywood’s charismatic actor Ranveer Singh is set to step into the iconic shoes of ‘Don’ for the highly anticipated third installment of the hit franchise. After legendary actors Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan, Ranveer Singh will now don the mantle of the enigmatic criminal mastermind. Director Farhan Akhtar recently unveiled the news through a special announcement video, creating a buzz in the entertainment world.

However, the casting switch has not been without its share of mixed reactions. Several fans expressed their disappointment over the change in the lead role. In an exclusive interview with the US-based publication Variety, director Farhan Akhtar shed light on the reasons behind this bold decision, emphasizing that the parting with SRK was amicable and mutual.

“I’m not in the position of replacing anybody. These are things that we discussed over the years. I wanted to take a certain direction with the story, somehow we just couldn’t find common ground. We just parted mutually knowing that it’s probably for the best. So that’s where it is,” Akhtar told Variety.

While acknowledging the weight of the legacy, Farhan Akhtar expressed his excitement about working with Ranveer Singh in ‘Don 3’. He stated, “I’m really excited Ranveer’s on board. He’s so charged and so ready to go. It’s a big film, just purely from the point of view of an actor, it’s a big thing to do, and we’re really excited to have him on board. His energy is energizing us, so to speak.”

In the announcement teaser, Ranveer Singh exudes charisma as he sits in a dimly lit setting, back to the camera, lighting up a cigarette. With a flair for drama, he introduces himself as ‘Don’ and then dramatically turns to face the camera, clad in a stylish leather jacket, matching pants, leather boots, and sunglasses.

The ‘Don’ series has always been synonymous with gripping narratives, exhilarating action sequences, and unforgettable moments. The original ‘Don,’ released in 2006, starred Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, and Boman Irani in pivotal roles. The film received acclaim, even winning the Best Asian Film at the Neuchatel International Fantastic Film Festival. A sequel, ‘Don 2,’ hit the screens in 2011, cementing the franchise’s status as a blockbuster.

Notably, actor Hrithik Roshan made a special appearance in ‘Don 2,’ adding to the star-studded cast. Farhan Akhtar’s directorial was a remake of the 1978 classic, featuring Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role.

The third installment of ‘Don’ promises to usher in a new era for the franchise and is scheduled for a 2025 release. In the meantime, Farhan Akhtar had earlier announced ‘Jee Le Zaraa,’ a road trip film starring Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif, and Priyanka Chopra. However, in the recent interview with Variety, Farhan revealed that the project is currently on hold, leaving fans eager for more updates on this exciting venture.

As the curtain rises on this thrilling new chapter of ‘Don,’ fans eagerly anticipate Ranveer Singh’s portrayal of the iconic character, ensuring that the franchise continues to captivate audiences with its gripping storytelling and adrenaline-pumping action.
