Shahrukh Khan Has Opted Out Of Don 3, Suggests Latest Reports
As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, King Khan has walked out of the franchise. The daily quoted a source as saying, "Khan has opted out of Don 3 for personal reasons and the Zoya Akhtar production franchise is still in the works, but with Khan bowing out, she is left without the main lead."

Who Will Play The Leading Lady In Don 3?
The report further stated that if Ranveer Singh signs on then Zoya will consider another favourite of hers- Katrina Kaif for the female lead.
The Other Side
Earlier when Farhan Akhtar was asked about Don 3, the actor denied working on the film and teaming up with SRK for any project.
Farhan himself is quite busy with films. The actor recently wrapped up Shonali Bose's The Sky Is Pink and will soon begin work on Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Toofan.
Coming back to Don 3, with so many speculations around the film, we just hope that the makers make some announcement and give us a clear picture.
