Mumbai, June 27 (IANS) Actress Priyanka Chopra says that according to her knowledge, the third installment of her popular film "Don" is not being made right now.

Asked by reporters at the airport as she returned from the IIFA awards in Spain if she was doing "Don 3", she said: "The film is not being made now, according to what I know."

Director Farhan Akhtar, who helmed the first two parts of the film starring superstar Shah Rukh Khan, had stated in March this year that he had finally decided on a 'thought' which he intends to develop into a script for "Don 3". But, in an interview recently, he had said that he had "shot himself in the foot" by announcing "Don 3" after the end of "Don 2".

Actress Jacqueline Fernandez, whose name had cropped up as the heroine of the film, had recently denied being part of "Don 3".

A report recently stated that Shah Rukh's three films, Priyanka's "Quantico" and Farhan's own acting commitments were the reasons for putting the film on hold.

Priyanka said: "I have been very busy, I have come home for a week and then I'll go back for 'Quantico' season two."

She won the best supporting actress at the IIFA awards for her performance in "Bajirao Mastani". About the win, she said, "I felt very good; I was little surprised but when your work is acknowledged, you feel very good."

Priyanka will next be seen in the Hollywood film "Baywatch".
