One of the major pillars and heartthrob of B Town or ‘King Khan of Bollywood’ aka SRK needs no introduction at all with his uncountable blockbuster films,  versatility and nobility. He’s known an irreplaceable entity of all the time and loved like no other actor worldwide.

Amongst the treasure box of SRK’s breakthrough works, the franchise ‘Don’ is one of the most notables and recently the controversial tidings regarding this film has made a mournful headline on his name that the actor is signing off the Don3, though it’s arguably denied by some. Here’s what we know till now.

After the sequel Don 2, though the arrival of Don 3 was expected, it’s been over a decade there’s no official update related to Don 3. However, a few months back, there was news of Farhan Akhtar the director of Don, Don2 to start his work on the film’s script and Don3 might be casted Shah Rukh Khan alongside the original Don Amitabh Bachchan.

The news was much captivating among the movie buffs while recently a report from Bollywood Hungama affirms a disheartening occurance that pours cold water on the prior excitements over the 3rd sequel of Don.

As per the current scenario SRK has lined up three projects including, Pathan, Dhunki and Jawan which he’s about to end while source informed Bollywood Hungama, “Shah Rukh Khan was offered Don 3. However, he turned it down.”

The source concludes, “It’s not like Shah Rukh Khan didn’t like the script. It’s just that Shah Rukh was not fully convinced. He knows Don is an iconic role and would like to step back into the character once he’s completely confident of the script. The box office scenario is not very healthy and he wants to be doubly sure before signing on the dotted line.”

It is assumed, the actor is now perhaps conscious about scripts before signing for any project for his last few flops including ‘Zero’ at the box office.

But things get more complicated and conflicts aroused over it when some states is nothing but “rumours”. Likewise, in the official website of “Box office world wide” they states,

“…..But we tried to find out and there is no truth to this.Close to makers and actor told us that SRK has NOT heard any script and all thes rumours are false.
Shah Rukh Khan has locked one tentative script for 2024 but that is still being finalised.”
In fact they shame the source vehemently adding “Every day one news of SRK doing or rejecting floated by the media which is irritating and unprofessional.”
