Ranbir Kapoor Was Another Choice For Don 3

As per a Times Now report, OG actor Shah Rukh Khan opted out of Don 3 since he wasn’t convinced with the script of the film. Following SRK’s exit from the film Farhan Akhtar then approached Ranbir Kapoor for the role, however, the Animal actor refused to take on the offer. Eventually, Farhan offered the role to Ranveer Singh who will now take on the franchise.

Speaking to Deadline, Ranveer Singh previously opened up about taking up the franchise, he said, “It is the handing over of the baton of one of the most loved and revered franchises of Hindi cinema. The significance of that is not lost on me. When the announcement was made, as expected, it came with its share of skepticism. But throughout the history of cinema, this has happened. Even as recently as perhaps when the Bond franchise changed hands and they announced Daniel Craig as the new Bond, it came with its fair share of skepticism. So, this is only natural”.
