For all the Shah Rukh Khan fans who are eagerly waiting for him to return as the stylish don in the third film of the franchise, there is hope still. In a rather cryptic tweet, the film’s producer Ritesh Sidhwani raised our hopes and then left us hanging.
Though no official confirmation is forthcoming from either SRK or Ritesh, it seems Don 3 is in the offing. On the fifteenth anniversary of Excel Entertainment, Ritesh posted a picture of Shah Rukh from the movie Don on Instagram with a caption that has Don 3 as one of the hashtags. He wrote, “#cool #suave #sexycriminal loved by everyone #don #franchisefilm #don3 Hmmmm #staytuned.”
To add to the excitement, he has asked fans to stay tuned for further updates.

It has been five years since Don 2 churned good numbers at the box office for its thrilling storyline and a strong star cast including Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani and Lara Dutta in the lead roles. While the first film was a remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s classic Don, the second film was an original enterprise.
Though the speculations about Don 3 came earlier this year, but Farhan Akhtar, the director of Don 2, was busy with his other projects and didn’t get time to proceed with Don 3.
Now, that the producer of the movie has hinted, we just hope Don 3 goes on the floor soon.
