After years of speculations, it seems that Don 3 is finally on track. The work on the script of the film, which stars Shah Rukh Khan in the titular role has finally begun and makers are expected to give the final narration to the superstar in next few months. The third instalment of the franchise will take the story forward, however, Priyanka Chopra would not be a part of the film.
“We have locked the basic idea of the film and shared it with Shah Rukh Khan. The story this time around is set in the Middle East and a major chunk of the film would be shot in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The script is currently being worked on and we plan to go on floors sometime next year,” said a source close to the development.
Talking about Priyanka Chopra’s involvement in the film, the source said, “Since the story is set in a different region, it doesn’t warrant her character. We shall decide on the final casting of the film once the final script has been locked.”
When asked if Don 3 will be Shah Rukh Khan’s next film after Zero, the source said, “The two scripts that he is considering currently includes Salute and Don 3. There is a huge possibility of Salute going on floors before Don 3. He shall announce his next film only after finishing the shoot of Zero.”
The final domestic schedule of Zero is currently underway at a studio in Mumbai, following which the entire team will fly to New York for the final schedule of the film. The movie, directed by Aanand L Rai is slated to release in Christmas this year. The movie also stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in lead.
