On Wednesday, actor Emraan Hashmi denied rumours that he would star in Farhan Akhtar’s ‘Don 3’.

Taking to Instagram, Emraan wrote, “For the fans and journalists that are asking. I was never a part of Don 3. Was never offered the movie.”

Meanwhile, Kiara Advani recently joined Ranveer Singh in ‘Don 3’.

In an August 2023 special announcement video, Farhan stated that Ranveer Singh will play the new Don in the blockbuster franchise’s third film.
