Ranveer Singh Pens A Note After Don 3 Announcement
Amid all the noise, Ranveer Singh took to Instagram to pen an emotional note, where he talked about making Amitabh Bachchan and Ranveer Singh proud with his performance in Don 3. He started the note with, “Gosh! I’ve been dreaming about doing this for a very, very long time! As a child I fell in love with the movies, and like the rest of us, watching and worshipping Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan – the two G.O.A.Ts of Hindi Cinema.”
Ranveer then wrote, “I understand what a great responsibility it is to be a part of the ‘Don’ dynasty. I hope the audience gives me a chance and showers me with love, the way they have for numerous characters over the past so many years.” Further, he thanked Farhan and Ritesh Sidwani for having faith in him.
