Ranveer Singh's name made headlines when Mumbai Mirror reported he's being approached to star in Shah Rukh Khan's Don 3 but not alongside him. The report suggested that RS will replace SRK in this project and it was a piece of harsh news to gulp down. While no confirmation about the story was out yet, Zoya Akhtar recently quashed all the stories and tagged it as 'nonsense'. During the press conference of Critics Choice Awards, when the Gully Boy director was asked to react to this report, she finally denied it completely.

When asked if she is collaborating with Ranveer Singh for Don 3, after the super success of Gully Boy, Zoya said, “No, no. That’s absolute nonsense.” Ask her about the progress of this sequel and she said, Na toh main Farhan Akhtar hoon, na hi main Shah Rukh Khan ya Ritesh Sidhwani hoon (Neither I am Farhan Akhtar, nor I am Shah Rukh Khan or Ritesh Sidhwani).”Guess we'll have to wait before the makers decide to announce it officially.

Meanwhile, there are reports about SRK doing the remake of Vijay's 2017 release, Mersal. The actor's recent meeting with director Atlee at IPL 2019 match in Chennai further raised the curiosity and we hope the announcement comes real soon.
