Ranveer Singh steps in as Shah Rukh Khan walks out of Don 3
If you think only Shah Rukh Khan (if not Amitabh Bachchan) can be the "Don" in the Don movie franchise, you might want to get prepared for this.
Amidst reports that Shah Rukh will soon begin the shooting for the Farhan Akhtar directorial (Don 3), latest news suggest that the superstar has walked out of the movie.
According to news reports, a source was quoted saying, “Khan has opted out of Don 3 for personal reasons and the Zoya Akhtar production franchise is still in the works, but with Khan bowing out, she is left without the main lead. We hear she has approached her favorite actor Ranveer Singh for Khan’s spot and the two are still in talks.”
The reports also added that Zoya is planning to cast Katrina Kaif as the female lead in the movie. While the 2006 film Don starred Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra in the lead roles, Don 2 (2011) featured Shah Rukh, Priyanka and Lara Dutta.
