When would Don 3 be released is a question Shah Rukh Khan and Bollywood fans alike have been asking for a very long time. In fact, fans could only wait with bated breath for the official announcement to be made after seeing Farhan Akhtar’s shot of picking up the pen and getting ready to write and Amitabh Bachchan’s throwback photo of SRK signing the Don poster. It appears that the movie has encountered a snag since SRK apparently isn’t ‘completely convinced’ with the storyline and hasn’t given the go-ahead for it!
You did read that correctly. According to a Bollywood Hungama story, Shah Rukh Khan was given the Don 3 script, and he rejected it. It’s not like Shah Rukh Khan didn’t like the script, a source was cited as saying. Just that Shah Rukh wasn’t entirely persuaded. He is aware that Don is a legendary part and would like to return to the role if he is entirely comfortable with the screenplay. He wants to be very certain before signing on the dotted line because the box office situation is not good.”
The same insider continued, “As of right now, Farhan Akhtar has gone back to the drawing board and we can hope that the superstar will gladly sign Don 3 the next time he sees SRK.” The supporters would be ecstatic. Imagine what would happen the day Don 3 is announced if the rumours around the movie had caused such a stir!”
Srk already has three movies planned. He is prepared to return with YRF’s Pathaan. The action film, directed by Siddharth Aand, would feature the actor as a spy with Deepika Padukone and John Abraham. He has also been quite busy filming the immigration drama Dunki, directed by Rajkumar Hirani and starring Taapsee Pannu. Additionally, the actor and Atlee are collaborating on Jawan. Nayanthara, Priyamani, Vijay Sethupathi, and Sanya Malhotra will also appear in the movie.
