A day after Don 3 teaser announced the casting, Ranveer shared a heartfelt note along with childhood pictures of him holding toy guns and wearing black sunglasses. Ranveer mentioned he always dreamt of being Don and highlighted the responsibility that comes with being part of the franchise.
He wrote, “Gosh! I’ve been dreaming about doing this for a very, very long time.” Explaining how SRK and Amitabh Bachchan played a pivotal role in inspiring him to become an actor and how their influence shaped his path, Ranveer said, “As a child I fell in love with the movies, and like the rest of us, watching and worshipping Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan – the two G.O.A.Ts of Hindi Cinema 🐐 🐐.”
He continued, “I dreamed of growing up to be like them. They are the very reason I wanted to become an actor and a ‘hindi film hero’. Their impact and influence on my life cannot be overstated. They’ve shaped the person and actor that I am. Taking their legacy forward is a manifestation of my childhood dream 😇🧿💫
He further added, “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.”
“Thank you Farhan and Ritesh for entrusting me with this honourable mantle and believing in me. I hope I can deliver on your faith and conviction. 🤜🏽🤛🏽 My two supernovas, The Big B and SRK, I hope I can make you proud. 🎭 And my beloved audience, as always, I promise you…that I will do my very best to entertain you…in and as…’Don’. 😎 Thank you for your love ♥️♥️♥️” he concluded.
