Fans of Shah Rukh Khan will rejoice at the newest development regarding his next potential project. The release of Don made King Khan a household name after his stellar performance. The sequel to it, which was released more than 10 years ago, cemented the anti-hero deep into our hearts that we have all come to know and love. Since then, fans have been awaiting the release of the third installment of the Don franchise but were instead met with disappointment as they were kept waiting for years and years.

Well, worry not. Some great news has popped up regarding its development. It has been reported that actor-director-screenwriter-playback singer-producer Farhan Akhtar is currently busy working on the script of Don 3. Farhan has also reportedly discussed the idea of Don 3 with his father and veteran lyricist Javed Akhtar who wrote the original 1978 film Don starring Amitabh Bachchan.

A source close to the development told Pinkvilla, "Don is a subject close to everyone at Excel. The team has been trying to crack and develop an idea for Don 3 for a while now, but the same has been put on the back burner time and again due to a lack of novelty factor. But the team has finally scummed upon an idea that's exciting and will take the franchise to the next level. Farhan has started writing the script and will give narration to his Don, aka. SRK, once the screenplay is locked." 

The source added, "Like always, Don 3 is still in the early stages and the future of the project will definitely depend on what shape the screenplay finally takes, but yes, it's confirmed that Farhan has started work on Don 3 script. Unlike the last few attempts to make a part 3, the idea this time around is too exciting to let go of, and everyone around is giving more than 100 percent to this project". 

There have also been rumors going around that the original Don of the 70s and our Don of this generation might be coming together in Don 3. If that were the case, it will be more than awesome to see Big B and King Khan sharing the screen with one another portraying their iconic characters.
