On Saturday night, Amitabh Bachchan resurrected some old memories as the internet erupted with netizens demanding Farhan Akhtar share an update on Don 3. Big B shared a priceless photo with superstar Shah Rukh Khan in which he can be seen signing an autograph on the poster for the film Don while SRK looks at him. Fans began connecting the dots and speculated that Amitabh Bachchan spilled some beans on the upcoming sequel to Don 2 after seeing a picture that appeared to be a throwback photo. Megastar’s cryptic post fueled the flames. “…. and… errr… continuing in the same vein… DON,” he captioned the photo.
His post quickly drew reactions from his followers. Navya Naveli Nanda, his granddaughter, also liked his post. “Congratulations, sir,” one of the fans wrote. “Two super legends in one frame WOW,” said another.
However, Big B appears to have continued his yesterday’s throwback series as Don turned 44, with no hint of Don 3. Amitabh Bachchan shared a rare photo of the’mile-long’ lines outside movie theatres after his action-thriller ‘Don’ debuted in 1978.
Amitabh captioned a photo on Instagram, “DON, my film, has been pre-booked… And they claimed… that the lines were a mile long… that it was released in 1978… 44 years! DON, Kasme Vaade, Trishul, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar, Ganga Ki Saugandh… five blockbusters in one year! Some of them lasted over 50 weeks… Oh, how times have changed!”
The hashtag Don 3 was one of the trending hashtags on Twitter for the uninitiated, as they demanded an update from director Farhan Akhtar on Don 3. Netizens did everything from pleading to trolling. Take a look at their reactions below:
‘Don,’ one of Amitabh’s most notable films, was released 44 years ago. The plot revolves around a wanted criminal on the run who succumbs to his injuries during a police chase. In an unexpected turn of events, another man named Vijay, who appears to be a doppelganger of the criminal, replaces him and attempts to uncover the details of his illegal activities. Following the 1978 film, ‘Don’ has appeared in three remakes, titled ‘Don,’ ‘Don 2’, and ‘Don: The Chase Ends,’ all of which starred superstar Shah Rukh Khan.
