Mumbai: The 44-year-old filmmaker Farhan Akhtar, who recently hinted at working on the script of the third instalment with Shah Rukh Khan in the lead, took to Twitter to rubbish rumours that he would play the role a police officer in the film.

 

“Request those who conjure up news about #Don3 without any fact checking to please refrain. It is not fair to raise expectations of the film’s fanbase via false news,” Akhtar wrote.

Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s production company, Excel Entertainment, owns the rights of the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer 1978 film Don.

Farhan Akhtar had previously hinted about the third instalment in the Don series starring Shah Rukh Khan.

Don is a remake of the 1978 film of the same name and follows the titular criminal’s look-alike who has been sent on a clandestine mission to impersonate Don after he is wounded in a chase and to infiltrate the plans of the drug mafia.

The film stars Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra, with Arjun Rampal, Boman Irani, Isha Koppikar, and Om Puri appearing in supporting roles.

The film was produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Akhtar’s production company Excel Entertainment.

After the success of the Don film, a sequel was immediately planned. The film was produced by Excel and Red Chillies Entertainment.

The film was officially announced in early 2010, with filming scheduled to begin in later that year.

The film was released on 23 December 2011 by Reliance Entertainment in 2D and 3D formats, which also included dubbed versions in Telugu and Tamil languages.

Last year, Sidhwani said the team had started working on the script and the story.

In terms of direction, it is unclear whether Akhtar, who directed the first two films, will be back at the helms again.

It was rumoured that Deepika Padukone would replace Priyanka Chopra – who played cop, Roma in the first two films of the franchise.

The star cast of the sequel is yet to be revealed.

Earlier, Farhan Akhtar announced that he has quit Facebook after reports appeared on the internet that Cambridge Analytica.
