In Don and Don 2 we have seen Shahrukh Khan playing a suave, sly, gun-toting don with always a clever trick up his sleeve. Now, the superstar is set to undergo a makeover and most likely play a Gujarati don in Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s next production.
However, the film won’t be the third part of the Don series. Rather, it would be a different movie altogether and will be directed by Rahul Dholakia.
Ritesh Sidhwani is quoted as saying by PTI: “SRK is doing the film. We are not sure when it will go on floors exactly but it will be next year. Shahrukh is excited about the film but we need to work out the schedule as he has prior commitments.”
As for the Don franchise, Ritesh said that the third part will roll only after the team has a good script to go along with.
Shahrukh Khan is presently on his Temptation Reloaded tour in Australia. On the movie front, he has shot the first schedule of Farah Khan’s Happy New Year, co-starring Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani and Sonu Sood.
