Ranveer Singh has been announced as the new Don in Farhan Akhtar-directed Don 3. The actor has opened up about taking on the role and now, Zeenat Aman, who played Roma in the original Don (1978) starring Amitabh Bachchan, has reacted to Ranveer’s casting.
Zeenat Aman reacted to Ranveer Singh’s wholesome post about carrying Don’s legacy forward after Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan. In the comments section, she wrote, “Congratulations, Ranveer! May you find a worthy ‘junglee billi’ to your Don!”
Fans will recognise “junglee billi” from Don’s famous dialogue, “Mujhe junglee billiyan pasand hai.” The line was also delivered by Shah Rukh Khan’s Don in which Priyanka Chopra Jonas played Roma.
In his post, Ranveer Singh wrote, “I understand what a great responsibility it is to be a part of the ‘Don’ dynasty. I hope the audience gives me a chance and showers me with love, the way they have for numerous characters over the past so many years.”
So far, the makers of Don 3 have not revealed any other cast members from the upcoming Don 3. It will be interesting to see who gets cast in the iconic role.
The film is expected to arrive somewhere in 2025.
