After introducing Ranveer Singh as the new Don, filmmaker Farhan Akhtar has spoken about who the leading lady will be in Don 3. In an interview with BBC Asian Network, Akhtar was asked to comment on who will be cast opposite Singh in the film. The filmmaker said, “Well it’s all work in progress. I don’t wanna get ahead of myself and say something that I may have to take back for any other reason but as and when it happens, you’ll know.”
There have been speculations that Kiara Advani may be in talks with Excel Entertainment to play the leading lady opposite Singh. As per reports, the female lead in Don 3 won’t be reprising Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s character Roma from Don (2006) and Don 2 (2011), but will play an entirely new character.
Filming for Don 3 will begin in January 2025. The film will be directed by Akhtar and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Akhtar.
