Don 3 Announcement: Ranveer Singh to lead the franchise, but everyone wants SRK back

The iconic ‘Don’ franchise is all set to make a grand return with Don 3, but this time Shah Rukh Khan will not play Don as Ranveer Singh will take the legacy ahead. The announcement video is shared by Farhan Akhtar, the director of the ‘Don’ franchise.

However, fans of the series were quick to express their frustration and outrage at the announcement that Ranveer Singh will replace Shah Rukh Khan as the lead actor in the series.

On Twitter, hashtag Don 3 is trending as the announcement video came, but the interesting part is that SRK fans are trending hashtags like Don 2, NO SRK NO DON and ShahRukhKhan on the social media to express their rage with the development of part 3 of the Don series. 

The Don franchise began in 1978 with Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role and was revived in 2006 with Shah Rukh Khan taking on the iconic character of Don. As the film was a success at the box office, it was followed by a sequel, Don 2, in 2011.

While fans have been eagerly awaiting news of a third instalment in the series, many were shaken and upset to hear that Ranveer Singh will replace Shah Rukh Khan as the new Don. Social media is flooded with comments from fans expressing their disappointment, refusing to believe SRK will not play Don anymore.
