Ranveer Singh will play the famous part in Don 3, and the producers of the film are currently working on casting new characters for the film. Ranveer Singh will be the main character. Following in the footsteps of Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan, who both played the same role in separate eras, the actor took on the role in the film that was directed by Farhan Akhtar and released the previous year. It has been reported that Emraan Hashmi may be cast in the role of the film’s antagonist, which is an intriguing piece of news.
Will Ranveer Singh and Farhan Akhtar choose Emraan Hashmi to play the role of the adversary in Don 3?
In the beginning, everything started when Emraan Hashmi was seen in the Excel Entertainment office that was owned by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. At the same time as the paparazzi were making fun of him about his possible casting, the actor came in his brand-new luxury vehicle. It was only before entering the office that he made a brief greeting to the paparazzi.
In a statement that was released in August 2023, Farhan Akhtar stated, “In 1978, a character that was created by Salim-Javed and portrayed by Mr. Amitabh Bachchan with effortless elan captured the imagination of theatergoers across the country.” Don was the name of that mysterious character. In 2006, Shah Rukh Khan recreated and brought to life the character of Don in a manner that was irresistibly appealing and unique to him. Whether it was Don’s sarcastic humor or his cool yet terrifying rage, Shah Rukh personified his image in every way. During my tenure as a writer and director, I had the pleasure of working with Shah Rukh Khan on not one but two Don films, and both of these experiences will always hold a special place in my heart.
In addition, Farhan Akhtar stated that he is prepared to carry on the legacy of the film with an actor whose talent and flexibility he admires. “The time has now come to take the legacy of Don forward, and joining us in this new interpretation will be an actor whose talent and versatility I have long admired,” Farhan remarked. “We are excited to have this actor join us in this new interpretation.” We are hoping that you will offer him the same affection that you have shown to Mr. Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan in such a kind and generous manner throughout the years. 2025 marks the beginning of a new age for Don.
In an interview with Deadline that took place in December 2023, Ranveer Singh stated, “I’m hoping to make Don my own and give it my spin, my interpretation.” By doing so, the torch of one of the most cherished and renowned franchises in Hindi cinema is being passed on to the next generation. My understanding of the significance of that is not lacking. As was to be expected, the news was met with a certain amount of skepticism when it was eventually made. However, this has occurred throughout the entirety of the history of cinema. Even more recently, perhaps when the Bond franchise was renamed and Daniel Craig was unveiled as the new Bond, there was a certain amount of cynicism that accompanied the announcement. As a result, this is simply normal.”
Amitabh Bachchan, who played both Don and Vijay in the 1978 film adaptation of the film, was the leading actor in the film. Scripts for the movie were written by Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar, while Chandra Barot was the director of the movie. After that, Farhan Akhtar directed the film in 2007, with Shah Rukh Khan playing a dual character, and one more installment was released in 2011. In reference to the third film, Ranveer stated, “Taking the baton forward in this franchise and continuing the legacy of two of our greatest superstars – the significance of that is not lost on me.” Ranveer was referring to the fact that the franchise is moving forward. Since that is the case, I will give it my best attempt, and you will see the absolute best of me. I will surely put my best foot forward for Don.
