Ranveer Singh Confirmed as the New Don, Don 3 Announcement Delayed Due to Scheduling Conflict

Renowned Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan has decided to part ways with the Don franchise in favor of pursuing films with a wider commercial appeal. Reports initially faced denial from various publications, but it was eventually confirmed that the younger actor Ranveer Singh would take on the iconic role of Don. To announce this exciting development, Ranveer even filmed a promotional video for the upcoming Don film.

There were speculations within the industry that the announcement for Don 3 would coincide with Ranveer Singh’s birthday. An insider revealed that the original plan was to release the announcement video on his special day, after strategically launching the trailer for his other film, “Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani,” a few days prior. The insider also mentioned that the concept and appearance of Ranveer as the new Don received overwhelming praise from industry insiders who had a sneak peek at the announcement video.

However, the team at Excel Entertainment faced an unexpected hurdle while planning the launch for July 6. The source explained that the teaser launch of another highly anticipated film, “Salaar,” was scheduled for the same day, causing Excel Entertainment to reconsider their announcement plans. With a flurry of announcements already flooding the month of July, including Shah Rukh Khan’s “Jawan,” it was collectively decided to put the Don 3 announcement on hold for the time being.

While a new date for the announcement has yet to be decided, insiders suggest that it might take place in August, contingent upon the success of Ranveer’s upcoming film, “Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani.” The idea behind this strategy would be to leverage the triumph of the film before unveiling the much-anticipated Don 3 announcement. Confidence is high among those involved that Ranveer’s collaboration with director Karan Johar will deliver the success they are hoping for.

Once Ranveer wraps up his commitments for the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed film “Baiju Bawra,” Don 3 is expected to commence production. The film, possibly slated for release in 2025, will see Farhan Akhtar returning as the director. Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for further updates on the progress of Don 3.
