According to the most recent update, Ranveer will continue the heritage of this action-packed series. An formal confirmation of this happy news is expected next week, coinciding with Ranveer’s birthday on July 6.
The news that Ranveer will star in “Don 3” will definitely please his fans, especially as they anticipate the release of “Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani.” In this film, Ranveer will star alongside Alia Bhatt.
Don 3 Release Date
There have also been reports that, in addition to directing Don 3, Akhtar will have a significant role in the film. In Don 2, Akhtar played a minor part as one of Don’s friends. He might have a bigger role in the second film, joining Khan and Chopra Jonas in the action.
There has been no public announcement on when it will be released. However, because Akhtar is nearly finished with the writing, it’s feasible that filming may begin shortly and the film will be released in 2024 or 2025.

Why is SRK not in Don 3?
SRK declined the project because he did not want to play the same character for the third time, according to Indian media reports.
“Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani have discussed Don 3 extensively with Shah Rukh Khan.” A few proposals were discussed prior to the epidemic. During the pandemic, these thoughts evolved into a plot. Despite recent conversations, Shah Rukh is not eager to reprise his role as Don at the moment. He is prepared to make commercial films that appeal to a wide spectrum of people, but Don does not fit into the types of films he intends to make in the coming years. He has informed the staff at Excel of his decision.”
Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani, directed by Karan Johar and starring Alia Bhatt, is Ranveer Singh’s next film.
