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.”
Fans Have Mixed Feelings About Don 3
Right after the announcement and the news of Ranveer Singh replacing Shah Rukh Khan replacing Don 3, netizens took to Twitter to share their feelings. Take a look.
There's no need to call it Don 3 if you don't have SRK in it. If it's a new era, just effin call it a reboot. Fly on the coat tails of Don & Don 2 and not even have the courtesy to value fan emotions in the right way after years of us wanting an SRK Don 3 is just disrespectful.
