Sources close to director Farhan Akhtar have confirmed that Shah Rukh Khan is no longer a part of the Don franchise.

The baton has passed on to Ranveer Singh, whose career seems to be rocking in spite of his recent films not doing well. 

Karan Johar’s highly anticipated Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani is out on Jul 28, after which Ranveer quickly steps into Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Baiju Bawra, followed now, by Farhan Akhtar’s Don 3.

To imagine Don without SRK is very tough. Apparently, Ranveer too thought the same. Before stepping into the Don’s shoes he sought King Khan’s consent. Khan happily said yes. He has had enough of Don. Like James Bond, it’s time for the Don franchise to move to another actor.
