Read the reports going around about Don 3 since this morning and excited about the sequel? Hold your horses. Farhan Akhtar, who will be helming the project, just like the previous two installments, has cleared the air around everything that is being said and written about the action franchise. In a tweet today, the director-actor-producer said, “Request those who conjure up news about #Don3 without any fact checking to please refrain. It is not fair to raise expectations of the films fanbase via false news.” Also Read - Priyanka Chopra-Nick Jonas Give Hints of Embracing Parenthood, Are They Planning Baby?

So there you go. Even as the film might be in the pipeline, there is no truth about all that is being said about the plot, the characters and the star cast. For the uninitiated, media reports suggest that Farhan had been completing the script of Don 3 the past few months and it is now finally ready. We also heard that Farhan will not only direct but also play a cop, chasing Shah Rukh Khan’s character Don in Don 3. And, the heartbreaking update was that the script has no place for Priyanka Chopra’s character in the film. However, Farhan’s statement has given us hope that we might just get lucky to see PeeCee in the film yet again? But all said and done, there is still time till Don 3 goes on floors and gets ready for us to see it on the big screen. ALSO READ: Suhana Khan Chilling In The Pool To Beat The Heat Is Giving Us Summer Goals (VIEW PICS) Also Read - It's a Girl For Anushka Sharma, Virat Kohli!

Farhan Akhtar and Shah Rukh Khan recreated the 1977 classic Don, starring Amitabh Bachchan in 2006 and then came out with Don 2 in 2011. The climax of the second film ended with scope for a sequel and fans have been waiting ever since. But since Shah Rukh is busy with Zero and then has Salute, the Rakesh Sharma biopic waiting for his attention, we may not see Don 3 start rolling before the end of next year.
