Deepika Padukone to replace Priyanka Chopra in SRK’s Don 3?



Deepika Padukone has been in the news since the past few days owing to her upcoming magnum opus ‘Padmavati’ controversy. While the sword is dangling on the head of the release date of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial, Deepika has made it to the news, but this time she can finally breathe in peace.

After the super success of Don and Don 2: The King Is Back, where the climax of the film saw an exciting tease for Don 3, the makers have been questioned time and again about the third part in Don saga. While film’s producer Ritesh Sidhwani had recently accepted that they are planning for Don 3 but nothing concrete has been revealed from their end.

Rumour mills are rife that Deepika has been approached to star opposite Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Don 3’.  Sources have said that Shah Rukh Khan has spoken to Farhan Akhtar about casting Deepika Padukone in Don 3 and this news has set the rumour mill ablaze.

Meanwhile, in an interview with another news agency, producer Ritesh Sidhwani spoke about Don 3saying, “We are thinking about Don 3 and we are thinking very hard on it. We have found the right idea, it’s being written now. We will make an official announcement soon.”

A source revealed to the agency, “There was a sincere effort from the concerned parties to solve the problem. However, it didn’t work out. Hence, it’s not decided whether the makers will look at another actress like Deepika Padukone to play the female lead. Shah Rukh is the lead and hence indispensable. So the actress had to be replaced.”

When asked if Farhan will direct the third installment, Ritesh added, “Wait for the announcement.”
On the other hand, when Farhan was asked if Don 3 was in the making, he revealed, “I am not ready with Don 3. That’s too far off.”

Priyanka Chopra who is loaded with offers from the west is busy shooting for her TV series ‘Quantico’ in LA. Interestingly, Deepika and Priyanka both have been creating waves in Hollywood and are flooded with offers even there. Dippy is also set to appear in another Hollywood project.

 Shah Rukh is currently busy with the shoot of Aanand L. Rai’s next which also stars Katrina Kaif Kaif and Anushka Sharma. The movie is slated for a Christmas 2018 release.
