''Welcome to the Don universe @kiaraaliaadvani #Don3,'' reads the caption of the post. 

Replying to the same, the actress took to her X (formerly Twitter) account and shared her excitement for joining Don 3. ''Thrilled to be part of the iconic Don franchise and to be working with this incredible team! Seeking all your love and support as we set out on this exciting journey together,'' she wrote. 

Earlier, reports of Priyanka Chopra playing the leading lady in the film made rounds. 

The team of Don 3 has indeed approached Priyanka Chopra to revisit her character. In fact, the first few meetings also took place when Priyanka came to India recently for another professional commitment. She used her time in India to align the talks and figure out her next project in the Hindi film industry,” Hindustan Times reported quoting a source.

After Ranveer Singh was announced for the titular role in Don 3, SRK fans were unhappy with this decision, following which Ranveer came forward and assured franchise's fans and shared a heartfelt note praising the previous two faces of Don series.

'My two supernovas, The Big B and SRK, I hope I can make you proud,'' he wrote.

Meanwhile, Don 3 is expected to go on the floors next year and release in the second half of 2025.
