Looks like all is not well between the makers and the cast of Don 3. Earlier reports suggested that Bollywood actress Kiara Advani is likely to be cast opposite Ranveer Singh in Don 3 – a film being created under the Don franchise. Now, fresh reports suggest that Kiara Advani has opted out of the action-packed movie, and actress Kriti Sanon has been roped in for the movie.

A report published on multiple news portals today believe that they have exclusive glimpses of Kriti meeting Ritesh Sidhwani – a film producer and founder of Excel Entertainment along with Farhan Akhtar. Ritesh, for the uninitiated, is producing the upcoming movie, Don 3, under the Don franchise.

A few days back, the Adipurush actress was seen hugging the filmmaker before exiting the building and moving toward her swanky Mercedes Maybach. Before getting into her ride, Kriti posed for select photographers who were gathered outside the office. 

Now, only time will tell whether the news development is true.

Meanwhile, about two days ago, Ritesh Sidhwani held a glitzy birthday bash in Mumbai city wherein a slew of celebrities was spotted in attendance. From Ranveer Singh, Karan Johar, and Maheep Kapoor to new-age stars like Sidharth Malhotra, Kiara Advani and AP Dhillon, the birthday bash was indeed a star-studded affair.

Some reports, two days ago, felt that Kiara’s presence at Ritesh Sidhwani’s residence confirms her presence in Don 3.


Don is a popular Bollywood film that has been remade and sequelled multiple times. The original Don movie was released in 1978, starring Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role.

In 2006, Farhan Akhtar directed a remake of Don, starring Shah Rukh Khan in the titular role. The film received positive reviews and was a commercial success. It retained the core plot of the original film but added modern elements and a stylish look. The remake was praised for its performances, especially Shah Rukh Khan's portrayal of the iconic character.

Don 2, released in 2011, is the sequel to the 2006 remake. It continued the story of Don and his criminal activities. The film was directed by Farhan Akhtar and featured Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, and Lara Dutta in prominent roles. Don 2 was a box office success and was praised for its sleek action sequences and gripping storyline.

Overall, the Don movie franchise has been successful in captivating audiences with its thrilling plots, charismatic characters, and stylish execution. The series has become an important part of Bollywood's history and has left a lasting impact on Indian cinema.
