The name of Shah Rukh Khan’s next film in the franchise has been revealed. Don 3 will reportedly be called Don: The Final Chapter. Just the title of the Farhan Akhtar-directed film is going to make a lot of Shah Rukh Khan fans mighty nostalgic. They will probably not have another to look forward to after The Final Chapter.
A few days ago, there were rumours that Shah Rukh Khan had opted out of the biopic on astronaut Rakesh Sharma. It was said that the actor had instead chosen to shoot for the third instalment in the Don and Don 2 franchise, directed by the actor’s dear friend Farhan Akhtar.
Saare Jahan Se Achha writer Anjum Rajabali later shot down all rumours, and clarified that Shah Rukh Khan is very much part of the project. According to reports, SRK will finish Saare Jahan Se Achha before he starts shooting for Don 3.
Don 3, that is being called Don : The Final Chapter, will see Shah Rukh Khan reprising his role of the gangster who no one can catch.
The first film in the franchise, Don, which also starred Priyanka Chopra, was well received by the audience. The film was a remake of the 1978 film of the same name starring Amitabh Bachchan, was a hit at the box office.
Priyanka Chopra will not be part of the third Don, since its storyline will have a lot of changes.
Shah Rukh Khan is expected to bring back his swagger from Don 2, the film that hit the screens in 2011.
In the past two instalments, don and don 2 Shah Rukh Khan has romanced Priyanka Chopra. The lead actress for Don: The Final Chapter, however, has not been finalised yet.
