The latest reports suggest that Ranveer Singh would replace Shah Rukh Khan in the Don franchise. While Farhan Akhtar, the architect of the franchise, refuses to comment, a source very close to Farhan denies these reports completely.
“Where did this come from? Ranveer Singh taking over Don? It sounds like an over-enthusiastic publicity gambit. No one except Shah Rukh Khan will do Don 3, if and when it happens. He is the face and brand ambassador of the franchise. Right now, Farhan doesn’t even have an idea for the plot in Don 3. People are jumping the gun in the hope that Farhan and Shah Rukh will react. Sorry, not happening,” says the source.
