Shah Rukh Khan's last film, Zero, received a mixed reaction from the fans. His vertically challenged character as Bauua Singh was an experiment that not many of his fans could digest. However, the curiosity about his films is always high. The fans can never get enough of this charmer of Bollywood and hence, the fans were ready for his next flick already, which was reported to be Farhan Akhtar's Don 3. However, to the dismay of his fans, it is NOT his next film. Shah Rukh Khan's Next is a Cop Drama with Aayush Sharma?.
There were constant reports on the beginning of the third installment of the much-loved Don franchise. The flick which has SRK as the ultimate swagger baddie, also reportedly got the title as 'Don 3: The Final Chapter.' Naturally, there will be no more installments of DON post this and this alone was enough for the fans to get excited about Don 3.
But while speaking to Mumbai Mirror, the co-producer of the film, Ritesh Sidhwani finally cleared all the confusion around this project. The producer told the tabloid, "We are still working on it and don’t know when it will happen. It’s a keenly awaited franchise and we can’t disappoint the fans."
This answer is enough for the fans to understand that 2019 is not the year when Don 3 will materialize on the silver screen. The wait is longer than that, maybe 2020?
On the other hand, SRK is in talks with several filmmakers for his next projects. As he also recently produced Amitabh Bachchan-Taapsee Pannu starrer Badla, there are rumours of King Khan collaborating once again with Big B. There are also reports of him doing a cop drama next with Madhur Bhandarkar. Nothing has been confirmed yet!
