Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan’s Don have always made headlines. And this time again, the film has grabbed all the eyeballs. And now it has been stated that filmmaker and actor Farhan Akhtar has started working on this upcoming film. Undeniably, the threequel of Don is considered as one of the most anticipated films of the year. But if reports are to be believed, then the film has been in its pre-production phase.
"Don is a subject close to everyone at Excel. The team has been trying to crack and develop an idea for Don 3 for a while now, but the same has been put on the back burner time and again due to lack of novelty factor. But the team has finally scummed upon an idea that's exciting and will take the franchise to the next level. Farhan has started writing the script, and will give narration to his Don aka. SRK, once the screenplay is locked," revealed a source close to the portals.
Not only this, it has also been reported that Farhan Akhtar has also discussed the same with his father, Javed Akhtar. Javed had originally written Don, in which Amitabh Bachchan was featured as a lead actor. The source then added, “Like always, Don 3 is still in the early stages and the future of the project will definitely depend on what shape the screenplay finally takes, but yes, it’s confirmed that Farhan has started work on Don 3 script.”
He then continued, “Unlike the last few attempts to make a part 3, the idea this time around is too exciting to let go off, and everyone around is giving more than 100 percent to this project.”
For the unversed, the first part of Don was released in 1978 and starred Amitabh Bachchan. Farhan's father, Javed Akhtar, wrote the blockbuster. However, Shah Rukh Khan starred in the sequel, which was released in December 2011. Ritesh Sidhwani produced the film, which was scripted by Farhan himself.
Don 3 has always been in trend, and now Shah Rukh Khan is all set to make his comeback after four years with the film Pathaan, so fans are pleading with the filmmaker to work on the threequel too. Hopefully, the film will start its production phase soon.
