Actor-director Farhan Akhtar does not rule out a third part to the Don
series. But for now, he says he wants to 'explore other genres'.
"I never refused to make Don 3
. It's just someone misquoted me and misconstrued my words to make a spicy headline that Don 3
is not happening'," Farhan told reporters here at a conference Monday.
His latest Don 2: The King Is Back
, a sequel to his 2006 film Don: The Chase Begins
, is ready to hit the screens Friday. He is confident about the movie, but wants to wait before taking a plunge into a third part for the action film.
"As a filmmaker, I would want to explore other genres too and not get restricted to one. In my interview, I had actually said that at this point of time, I am not ready to take the story forward. I don't want to get into it as of now, but I never denied the possibility of it. I am very fascinated by Don as character, and I would love to take it to the next level, but only when I have a good script.
"So if someone had to ask me now, if I want to take the story of Don
forward, yes I want," added Farhan, who was accompanied at the event by Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Kunal Kapoor and producer Ritesh Sidhwani.
