After months of speculation, the leading lady of Don 3 has finally been announced. The makers shared yesterday that Kiara Advani has got on board the third edition of the action thriller franchise. Alongside a specially created video, they wrote, "Welcome to the Don universe, Kiara Advani." Apparently, director Farhan Akhtar, who is also producing the film with his business partner Ritesh Sidhwani, felt that the Satyaprem Ki Katha actor is perfect for the part. What makes her casting interesting is that it marks her first on-screen pairing with Ranveer Singh, who has been signed on to play the titular role, made iconic by Amitabh Bachchan in 1978, and later, Shah Rukh Khan in the 2000s. However, it remains to be seen if Kiara's character will be called Roma or will she get a new name. Filming begins this summer and the makers plan to bring Don 3 to cinemas next year. This will be Kiara's second big action thriller, after Aditya Chopra's War 2, starring Hrithik Roshan and Junior NTR.

Bebo se baatein

Kareena Kapoor Khan will shoot an episode of Neha Dhupia's chat show this week. Since the two are good friends, sources claim we can expect the same camaraderie on the show too. While Neha is said to be primarily focusing on the theme of love this season, we hear Bebo will be in her element. She will talk candidly about her journey as an actor, joys of motherhood and several other subjects that she hasn't opened up on before.

Buzz in B-Town is that Pulkit Samrat and Kriti Kharbanda are set to tie the knot next month. Apparently, the couple has chosen March 13 as their D-Day.

I do, I do, I do love you." Besides commenting on his post, "You do, so you?" Kriti also posted a picture with him on her social media, captioned, "Let's March together, hand in hand."

On a thrill ride

Even as his production, Article 370, releases this Friday, Aditya Dhar is set to begin his next directorial venture. Reportedly, the yet-untitled action thriller is based on recent terrorist killings in Pakistan. The filmmaker and his team are sparing no effort in the making of the new movie. "Besides making it a unique visual spectacle, Aditya will be giving the subject an unconventional treatment that has not been seen in this genre in Hindi cinema. Like Uri: The Surgical Strike (2019) and Article 370, the filmmaker has researched extensively for his next too.

While the families were part of the haldi ceremony, Varun Dhawan, Ayushmann Khurrana, Riteish Deshmukh, Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra landed in the beach state last afternoon for the celebrations.
