A week ago, filmmaker-actor Farhan Akhtar during the trailer launch of Gully Boy, stated of making a special announcement soon. Rumours started doing the rounds as it is regarding Shah Rukh Khan’s Don 3 and after news of Khan opting out of Saare Jahaan Se Accha came in, it was almost validated that the actor has chosen Don Series over Rakesh Sharma’s biopic. Now, the filmmaker with his tweet has put an end to all the speculations.
On Wednesday, Farhan Akhtar tweeted about his reunion with maverick director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, for upcoming Toofan movie. The duo collaborated after six years, since Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. Toofan is a story of a boxer.
With a tweet, the filmmaker-actor put an end to all the speculations about his collaboration with Shah Rukh Khan starrer Don 3, as Toofan seems to be his special announcement.
After Khan backed out of Saare Jahaan Se Accha, it is another sad news for SRKians as they might need to wait longer to catch their beloved actor on-screen as Farhan, who is directing Don 3, will be super busy with his preparations to portray a boxer.
Although Don 3 is confirmed with SRK in lead, there are no details about its commencement.
A ‘thrilled’ Farhan on Wednesday tweeted that the upcoming film will be based on a boxer.
“Thrilled to share that six years after Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and I are reuniting to create Toofan, a heartfelt story of a boxer. Hope for your best wishes as we embark on this new journey. Love.”
