It's official. Shah Rukh Khan has opted out of Saare Jahaan Se Accha, the Rakesh Sharma biopic (which he was also going to co-produce with Siddharth Roy Kapur),. SRK had confirmed in his interview with me few days before Zero hit theatres that he has greenlit Siddharth's film, but I now hear that he has changed his mind. SRK is instead collaborating with Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani and the stage is being set for Don 3.

The parting between SRK and Siddharth was amicable. They will work together in future. It is possible that after the failure of Zero, SRK wants to go all out on a mainstream popular subject (Nothing wrong in that, one should always do in life what he/she wants). On the other hand, Siddharth is not perturbed. The former UTV employee has a killer script which has enticed many stars, including Aamir Khan in the past. Post Aamir not doing the film, Siddharth quickly had SRK on board- and going by that yardstick, it shouldn't be difficult to get another big star soon. Aamir himself had recommended King Khan for the role. A younger star will replace SRK in Saare Jahaan Se Accha. Sharma was 35 when he went to space.

It will be interesting to see who plays the female lead in Don 3, the first two parts had Priyanka Chopra. The director of Don 3 is not yet firmly decided, but judging by SRK's jump into the Don franchise--- we are almost sure that it will be none other than Farhan who helmed the first two parts, Don and Don 2.

Farhan had said at the trailer launch of Gully Boy that a big announcement was on the cards. While whispers were agog that he had hinted that he was getting ready to marry Shibani Dandekar, it could also be the shooting of Don 3 which is now believed to go on floors by end of this year.
