Even though there is no official announcement yet, Shah Rukh Khan’s Don 3 has been making headlines for a long time. If recent reports are to be believed, Farhan Akhtar has started working on the script of Don 3. As per a report in Punkvilla, the filmmaker is currently writing the script and will convey the same to Shah Rukh Khan once the screenplay is done.
“Dawn is a theme close to everyone at Excel. The team has been trying to come up with and develop an idea for Dawn 3 for some time now, but it has been repeatedly put on the back burner due to its lack of innovation factor. But the team has finally found an idea that is exciting and will take the franchise to the next level. Farhan has started writing the script and he will narrate his don aka SRK, once the screenplay is locked. Later,” claimed the source quoted by the entertainment portal.
Reportedly, Farhan also discussed Don 3 with his father Javed Akhtar, who originally wrote Amitabh Bachchan’s Don. “As always, Don 3 is still in the early stages and the future of the project will definitely depend on what shape the screenplay eventually takes, but yes, it has been confirmed that Farhan has signed on for Don 3 script. Work has started. Unlike some previous attempts to make Part 3, it is very exciting to drop the idea this time, and everyone is giving more than 100 per cent to the project,” said the source.
The report of Don 3 first made headlines earlier this month when filmmaker Ritesh Sidhwani removed a picture from Farhan’s study room, where the actor was seen in his writer mode. “100% attention even when he is putting pen to paper (mistake.. fingers on keyboard) @faroutakhtar is back in writer mode after a long gap. Guess what he’s working on…” read the caption. This had left netizens speculating whether Farhan is already working on Don 3.
As for the unversed, the first part of Don featured Amitabh Bachchan and was released in 1978. It was written by Farhan’s father Javed Akhtar. However, a sequel to the film starring Shah Rukh Khan was released in December 2011. It was written by Farhan himself and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani.
