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 that someone misquoted me and misconstrued my words to make a spicy headline that Don 3 is not happening," Farhan told reporters in New Delhi at a conference on 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 on 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.
