Emraan Hashmi denies being part of ‘Don 3’


The Indian cinema landscape buzzed with rumors and fan theories until Bollywood actor Emraan Hashmi took to social media to set the record straight about his involvement in the much-anticipated movie ‘Don 3.’ In a direct statement to his followers on Instagram, Emraan Hashmi asserted, “For the fans and journalists that are asking. I was never a part of Don 3. Was never offered the movie.” This open dismissal debunks the circulating speculation of Hashmi portraying a villainous role in the latest installment of the iconic ‘Don’ series.

The media and fanbase were rife with conjecture, as they eagerly awaited confirmation of the cast that would bring the next chapter of ‘Don’ to life. Hashmi’s potential involvement had been a talking point, with many enthusiasts envisioning him stepping into the antagonist’s shoes against the film’s protagonist. Nevertheless, with this revelation, it’s clear those envisioning the ‘Murder’ and ‘Jannat’ star in the role will have to wait to see who indeed will shape up to be the new nemesis.

Simultaneously, there is growing excitement regarding the addition of Kiara Advani to the star-studded lineup alongside Ranveer Singh, whose involvement was publicized through a special announcement video in August 2023. Helmed by the multi-talented Farhan Akhtar, ‘Don 3’ sees Singh taking over from where Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan left off, as he steps into the titular role of Don. Fans caught a glimpse of the new lead in the teaser, where Ranveer gracefully introduced himself in the Don’s avatar, equipped with a stylish leather outfit and the iconic cigarette that he nonchalantly lights, paying homage to his predecessors.

The ‘Don’ series has always been met with critical acclaim and fan adoration, captivating audiences with its blend of thrilling narratives, adrenaline-pumping action sequences, and memorable cinematic moments. The franchise’s inception saw Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, and Boman Irani deliver riveting performances in the 2006 reboot, which not only captivated audiences nationwide but also earned international accolades including Best Asian Film at the Neuchatel International Fantastic Film Festival. The sequel, ‘Don 2’, further established its success upon its release in 2011, featuring a special appearance by the charismatic Hrithik Roshan.

Each iteration of ‘Don’, dating back to the original 1978 classic that starred Amitabh Bachchan, has elevated the bar for action thrillers within the Indian film industry. As the franchise progresses, it retains its reputation for excellence and innovation, with audiences waiting in eager anticipation for what ‘Don 3’ will present.

As excitement builds for ‘Don 3’, speculation will continue to revolve around the pivotal casting choices that will fill the screen. While the identity of the new antagonist remains shrouded in mystery following Hashmi’s disconfirmation, the film’s promise of high-octane action and dramatic flair remains undiminished. With a rich legacy behind it and a new chapter on the horizon, the ‘Don’ series is poised to once again capture the hearts of its faithful audience and perhaps, usher in a new legion of fans.
