Speaking to a portal, Karanvir shared that after watching the promo of Don 3 with Ranveer Singh in it, he desired to be a part of it and play the villain opposite the actor.

He stated that though Deepika knows him too, they don't meet often, so he decided to try his luck with her and the film. He messaged her expressing his wish to be a part of Don 3.
"She replied back saying, 'I can’t help you this way but I can help you with the name of the person who does casting for the banner making the film'," he shared, adding that he then texted the member of the casting unit and asked them to get him a suitable role in Don 3.
About Don 3
Don 3 marks the third installment of the blockbuster Don franchise, helmed by Farhan Akhtar. The first two installments of Don starred Shah Rukh Khan as the menacing anti-hero, and now, the mantle has been handed over to Ranveer Singh.
It is to be noted that the very first Don in Bollywood was played by Amitabh Bachchan.
As soon as Ranveer's name was announced by the makers, the audience expressed their disappointment over the casting, and demanded that SRK be retained for the Don films to come.
However, Farhan stated that Don 3 will mark the beginning of a new era and thus, they decided to go with a fresh face for the franchise.
