Ranveer Singh official replaces Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Don 3’

Filmmaker Farhan Akhtar introduces Ranveer Singh as the new generation Don and the announcement video is truly iconic. With his magnetic presence, undeniable talent, and a penchant for delivering memorable performances, Ranveer Singh is ready to step into the new interpretation of this larger-than-life character, one of the most awaited action franchises of 2025. The Don series has always been synonymous with riveting narratives, thrilling action, and unforgettable moments. In a statement after unveiling the title logo of the movie, Farhan Akhtar said, "In 1978, a character created by Salim-Javed and portrayed by Mr Amitabh Bachchan with effortless elan, captured the imagination of theatregoers across the country. That enigmatic character was Don." He added, "In 2006, Don was reimagined and brought to life by Shah Rukh Khan in his own irresistibly charming way. From Don's sardonic wit to his cool but menacing fury, Shah Rukh embodied his persona. As writer & director, I had a great time creating not one but two, Don films with Shah Rukh and both experiences remain very close to my heart."
