Actress Kiara Advani has officially confirmed her role in the controversially discussed film "Don 3", directed by Farhan Akhtar. In an announcement made on social media, Kiara expressed her thrill to be joining the esteemed Don franchise and working alongside the talented team.
In August, Farhan Akhtar revealed that Shah Rukh Khan would not be reprising his role as Don in the third instalment of the franchise, much to everyone’s shock. Following this disclosure, a teaser featuring Ranveer Singh as Don was released. The announcement garnered a mixed response from fans, with some expressing joy about the franchise's return, while others believed Shah Rukh Khan should continue portraying the stylish criminal pursued by law enforcement across 11 countries. This sparked criticism directed at Shah Rukh Khan and the film's creators, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani.
Last month, Farhan Akhtar unveiled the new face of the iconic character 'Don' as Ranveer Singh for the upcoming third instalment of the franchise. This decision left Shah Rukh Khan's fans disappointed, as they had been anticipating his return to the role. In a recent interview, Farhan talked about the reasons behind this casting change and expressed his enthusiasm for having Ranveer on board.
Farhan Akhtar at the time wrote and captured something that would truly become the selling point of the film, catapulting it to the ‘classic’ and ‘beloved’ status it has today.
Farhan Akhtar shared a teaser which revealed Ranveer Singh's macho avatar as Don. Farhan Akhtar shared the introduction video with the caption, "A New Era Begins. Don 3".
Farhan Akhtar’s version, “Don: The Chase Begins” (2006) starring Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra also managed to carry on Chandra Barot’s mantle, making its place in the hearts of the audience. Furthermore, “Don 2: The King is Back” (2011) further affirmed the film’s position as a marvelous classic in the minds of the fans.
