Mumbai, Oct. 15 -- Recently, a few reports suggested that Farhan Akhtar and Shah Rukh Khan are keen to start work on the third instalment of the Don franchise. But soon speculations were rife that Priyanka Chopra, who played the female lead in Don (2006) and Don 2 (2011), might not be cast in it.

Rubbishing the reports, Ritesh Sidhwani, who co-produced the film with Farhan, announced that the actor will be part of the project. "Much speculation on #Don3 & it's Casting. No thoughts of changing it's casting..

Working towards developing the script. Will keep u posted. Luv (sic)," he tweeted on Tuesday (October 13). Priyanka, who has been busy shuttling between the US and India to shoot for her international TV show and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani respectively, is apparently excited to be in Farhan's film. "She is looking forward to the next instalment.

The makers will meet her once the script is locked to take things forward," says a source. However, adding to the confusion, Farhan also tweeted the following post on October 13, "Dear #Don fans, please do not react to rumors regarding the sequel. As & when the time comes, you'll hear the truth from me. @iamsrk (sic)"
