<p>But according to recent reports, Farhan has already spoken to another actor before deciding to cast Ranveer as Don. You did really read correctly! According to a Times Now.com article, Farhan approached Animal actor Ranbir Kapoor for the part after SRK turned down the Don 3 screenplay. According to reports, SRK declined to star in the film since he wasn’t sold on the Don 3 screenplay. Farhan allegedly went to Ranbir after SRK declined, but Ranbir too turned down the part. Finally, the movie reached Ranveer, who is rather enthusiastic about it.</p>
<p>Ranveer Singh made a statement regarding taking on the role of Don at the Red Sea Film Festival shortly after Don 3’s unveiling. He stated, “I’m hoping to make Don my own and give it my spin, my interpretation.” Ranveer also responded to the abuse he received when certain Shah Rukh Khan supporters rejected him as the new Don.</p>
<p>It’s the passing of the reins for one of Hindi cinema’s most cherished and admired brands. I don’t doubt the relevance of it. Naturally, there was some skepticism when the statement was made. However, this has occurred throughout the history of film. There was a good deal of skepticism, even as recently as when the Bond franchise changed ownership and Daniel Craig was introduced as the new Bond. Thus, this makes sense,” Ranveer told Deadline. The release of Don 3 is scheduled for 2025.</p>
