Farhan Akhtar to play cop in Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Don 3’?

SNS | New Delhi |

Filmmaker-turned-actor Farhan Akhtar is all set to not only direct and produce the third instalment of Don but will also act in the upcoming crime thriller.

Farhan, who came up with the first instalment of the remake of the 1970s hit film with the same name in 2006, will be essaying the role of a cop in Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Don 3.

According to a report in DNA, Farhan has finally come out with the script and is looking forward to finalise other things.

A source close to the film unit was heard as saying, “He had bounced the idea off to SRK, who liked it. Farhan had taken a break from acting and channelised all his energy into developing the script for this film of the Don franchise. He has finally locked the script and things are moving in the right direction.”

But wait! There is a big twist in Farhan’s latest entry in the Don franchise.

As per reports, Farhan will be seen in the role of a desi-cop. That’s quite a surprise as it will be treat to see Farhan sharing the screen space with Shah Rukh.

With Farhan joining the cast of the film, the fate of Roma (essayed by Priyanka Chopra) is yet to be known as if rumours are to be believed, Don 3 won’t require Priyanka’s character as it will introduce an all-new cast and a different storyline.

Presented by Excel Entertainment, Don 3 is expected to hit the floors sometime in mid 2018 and will have SRK reprise the role of the anti-hero ‘Don’.
