Earlier this month, mid-day reported that director Farhan Akhtar and actor Ranveer Singh are planning to take Don 3 on floors in August (Gyarah mulkon ki police better watch out, Feb 2). Things seem to be moving fast on the action thriller’s front. Only days after the team announced Kiara Advani as the film’s leading lady, we have now learnt that the lead actors will begin their action training in March.

Since Don 3 will see the stars dive deep into action, sources say Akhtar wanted them to begin their prep early. “Ranveer and Kiara will start their physical prep, beginning with agility training, from late March. Experts in martial arts from Thailand have been roped in,” reveals a source. It is also heard that the filmmaker is keen to up the ante when it comes to stunts. 

The source elaborates, “In the last few years, Hindi cinema has seen every type of stylised action— from War [2019] to Pathaan [2023] and Fighter. So, Farhan wants to make the action syntax fresh. He has had several meetings with action choreographers from India and other countries to discuss the possibilities. He wants the palette to be different from whatever the tentpole movies have offered in recent years.”
