Last month, Bollywood Hungama reported that Farhan Akhtar narrated the script of the much-awaited film, Don 3, to its lead actor, Shah Rukh Khan. However, the superstar was not entirely convinced with the idea, due to which Farhan Akhtar decided to go back to the writing table.
We have now found interesting details about the script of Don 3 which was narrated by Farhan Akhtar. A source told Bollywood Hungama, “Farhan had an ambitious idea of getting Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan together in the third installment. Interestingly, Bachchan saab was the lead in the original Don (1978). It had a different ending and showed the good-natured Vijay surviving and Don dying, while SRK’s version showed vice versa. Hence, it’s not clear whether or not Big B was supposed to play the role from the original version. However, Farhan definitely had thought of casting Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan in Don 3.”
The source continued, “And that’s not all. As per Farhan’s plot, Don 3 was also supposed to have a cameo by Ranveer Singh. He too was going to play Don. The idea was that SRK’s Don character would pass the baton to Ranveer’s Don character so that he can take on the iconic role in the future parts.”
The source added, “Don 3 is one of the most awaited films of all time and if Shah Rukh Khan is joined by Amitabh Bachchan and Ranveer Singh, then it would have also translated into a record-breaking opening, especially if the film had been released on a holiday.”
The source signed off by saying, “Let’s see if Farhan Akhtar fleshes out this idea in a better and more convincing way or does he choose a different plot. Whatever the story idea, whether Shah Rukh Khan stars solo or is joined by other stars, the curiosity, and desperation to see Don 3 will always be sky-high.”
