Gully Boy turns Don: Ranveer Singh to say “Main hoon Don” in Don 3

In the third part of the hit franchise to be directed by Farhan Akhtar, Ranveer Singh steps into SRK's shoes as he says “Main hoon Don.” With Don 3, director Farhan Akhtar is all set to redefine the boundaries of storytelling once again, and this time he has confirmed Ranvir Singh to play the new Don. With his magnetic presence, Ranveer is ready to step into the new interpretation of this larger-than-life character, Don as the teaser and first look was dropped this morning introducing him to the franchise and its loyal fans.

Sharing the teaser, Farhan wrote, “A New Era Begins #Don3.” The teaser begins with Ranveer sitting with his back to the camera in a high-rise building. He's wearing leather jacket; leather boots and smokes a cigarette before facing the camera and introducing himself as Don. Before unveiling himself, an impactful voiceover is heard saying, “Sher jo so raha hai vo jagega kab, poochte hai ye sab. Unse kah do ki jaag utha hoon main.” We further hear, “Kya hai taakat meri, kya hai himmat meri phir dikhane ko. Maut se khelna zindagi hai meri, jeetna hi mera kaam hai. Tum to ho jante, jo mera naam hai. 11 mulko ki police dhundti hai mujhe par pakad paya hai mujhko kaun.” At this point, we finally get to see Ranveer Singh's face as he says the famous line from Don, “Main Hoon Don.”

The rage of Don started in 1978 with Amitabh Bachchan playing the lead along with Zeenat Aman in the original film written by Farhan Akhtar’s father Javed Akhtar along with his then creative partner Salim Khan, the father of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan. When Excel Entertainment thought of remaking this iconic film, they roped in Shahrukh Khan who continued in the two-part action franchise. With the iconic 'Don' franchise set to make a grand return, Ranveer Singh has been officially crowned as the new 'Don' in the highly anticipated 'Don 3'.

Taking to his Instagram handle on Tuesday, Farhan shared a note hinting at a new era of Don. The note read, “It was 1978 when the nation witnessed the rage of Don for the first time with superstar Mr Amitabh Bachchan playing the lead. While the first film continues to hold its charm, Excel Entertainment is delighted to announce the directorial homecoming of Farhan Akhtar's Don. With a legacy firmly established through his iconic two-film action franchise with Shah Rukh Khan in 2006 and 2011, the director is set to redefine the boundaries of storytelling once again in Don 3.”

He added, “The time has now come to take the legacy of Don forward and joining us in this new interpretation will be an actor whose talent and versatility I have long admired. We hope that you will show him the love you have so graciously and generously shown to Mr Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan. A new era of Don begins in 2025. Watch this space.”
