There were reports that Deepika Padukone may replace actress Priyanka Chopra in next part of Don. However Sidhwani has a different story to share.

Sidhwani on Monday said: "Deepika is not part of Don".

He was speaking to media at the success party of his friday released film Fukrey Returns. Talking about the next part of Excel entertainment's Don franchise, Sidhwani said: "We are working on that and very soon we will announce that also."

Giving more information about his future projects, he said: "Now we have produced comedy and next from our side will be 3 Storeys which will be a completely different film releasing in February. Then we are coming up with Gold and Gully Boy so all these films are different in terms of genre and none of them are comedies, so I think people should follow what they believe in and the kind of stories they want to tell. If you try to do the same thing or emulate something which is not inherent, I don't think success will come your way," he added.

Fukrey Returns has crossed Rs. 30 crores in just three days of its arrival at the theatres.
