Filmmaker Farhan Akhtar on Tuesday rubbished rumours that he would play the role of a police officer in Don 3.
The 44-year-old director, who recently hinted at working on the script of the third instalment with Shah Rukh Khan in the lead, took to Twitter to clarify.
"Request those who conjure up news about #Don3 without any fact checking to please refrain. It is not fair to raise expectations of the films fan base via false news," Akhtar wrote.
Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani's production company, Excel Entertainment, owns the rights of the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer 1978 film Don.
Last year, Sidhwani said the team had started working on the script and the story.
In terms of direction, it is unclear whether Akhtar, who directed the first two films, will return to the helm again.
It was rumoured that Deepika Padukone would replace Priyanka Chopra -- who played police officer Roma in the first two films of the franchise.
The star cast of the sequel is yet to be revealed.
