Is Shah Rukh Khan Soon Going To Announce Don 4? TRUE Story Inside- EXCLUSIVE
Farhan Akhtar has frequently denied these rumours. In fact when the rumours erupted the last time he confided in me, “I wish  it was true. Every time these  rumours crop up I  feel terribly guilty. I feel I’m letting the fans  of the Franchise down. But the  truth is, I’ve no script. I don’t even have an idea for a plot.”

It was  hoped—not  for the first time—that there would be  a Don announcement for Shah Rukh Khan’s birthday. But it   didn’t happen that way at all.

A source close to Farhan reveals, “Direction is far from Farhan’s mind right now. He is much more into acting and music right now. If at all another Don film is made by Excel(Entertainment, that’s Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s company)  it would now have to be directed by someone other than Farhan which  is easier said than done….or should I say, Don?”

It would have to be a director  okayed by both Farhan and Shah Rukh.  With the leading lady Priyanka Chopra already out of  the  Don series , and possibilities of another director replacing Farhan, Don may not be the same ever again. According to the source, Farhan wont be taking on any directorial or acting assignments for the next one year.

“In any case  Farhan has  not directed  any film since Don 2 in 2011.As  for acting, Farhan is currently living the  boxer’s life  shooting for Rakeysh  Omprakash  Mehra's  Toofan, ” says  the  source. One recalls Farhan’s  full-scale commitment playing Milkha Singh in Rakeysh Ompraksh Mehra’s Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.

One recalls  a physical  preparation as  intense as Farhan’s only once before, when Rajkummar Rao played  a  a man trapped away  from human contact for weeks in Vikramaditya Motwane’s Trapped. 

Says  Mehra, “Farhan and I share  a very special rapport. It’s to do with our commitment to tell a story about an individual whose  life has a universal resonance.”
