Initially his face is not visible and he starts by saying, "Fir jo so raha hai woh jaagega kab, puchte hai ye sab. Unse keh do ki fir jaag utha hu main aur phir saamne jald aane ko..." He loads a gun and continues, "Kya hai taqat meri kya hai himmat meri phir dikhane ko. Maut se khelna zindagi hai meri jeetna hi mera kaam hai, tum toh ho jaante jo mera naam hai." While lighting a cigarette, he repeats the iconic dialogue of Don, "11 mulkon ki police dhundti hai mujhe par pakad paya hai mujhko kaun, main hun Don." The teaser ends at a shot of Ranveer's face with the popular theme of Don in the background. It is pertinent to mention here that Farhan Akhtar is known for directing the Don franchise while Ritesh Sidhwani is the producer.

Farhan Akhtar explains Don 3 cast change
Farhan Akhtar on Tuesday took to his Instagram and shared a long note which stated, "In 1978, a character created by Salim-Javed and portrayed by Mr. Amitabh Bachchan with effortless elan, captured the imagination of theatregoers across the country. That enigmatic character was Don. In 2006, Don was reimagined and brought to life by Shah Rukh Khan in his own irresistibly charming way. From Don's sardonic wit to his cool but, menacing fury, Shah Rukh embodied his persona. As writer & director, I had a great time creating not one but two, 'Don' films with Shah Rukh and both experiences remain very close to my heart. The time has now come to take the legacy of Don forward and joining us in this new interpretation will be an actor talent and versatility I have long admired. We hope that you show him the love you have so graciously and generously shown to Mr Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan. A new era of Don begins in 2025."
