Ranbir Kapoor replaces Shah Rukh Khan in Farhan Akhtar's Don 3

There have been reports of film-maker Farhan Akhtar working on the script of the third part of 'Don' for a long time. However, there has been no official confirmation on the same. 

  Farhan produced, wrote and directed the first two sequels of Don, both of which featured Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra in lead roles. Now, we hear that the film-maker replaces Ranbir Kapoor as the lead in the third part of the franchise. 

It is to be noted that after the failure of 'Zero', Shah Rukh Khan did not announce any new project. Sources said that the superstar apparently wanted to keep himself away from the film for a while now. However, reports are on that Shah Rukh is apparently in talks with Rajkumar Hirani for his next film. The film will be directed by Hirani and produced under the banner of Red Chillies. Ranbir has worked with Hirani in 2018-released 'Sanju', which turned out to be one of the highest-grossers of the year. 

 Ranbir is currently shooting for 'Brahmastra' starring Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and Akkineni Nagarjuna in lead roles. The film is produced by Karan Johar and directed by Ayan Mukherji. On the other hand, Shah Rukh is in the news for the second season of his chat show 'Ted Talks' which is all set to go on a high note.
