New Delhi: Actor-director Farhan Akhtar does not rule out a third part to the `Don` series. But for now, he says he wants to "explore other genres".

"I never refused to make `Don 3`. It`s just someone misquoted me and misconstrued my words to make a spicy headline that `Don 3` is not happening`," Farhan told reporters here at a conference Monday.

His latest "Don 2: The King Is Back", a sequel to his 2006 film "Don: The Chase Begins", is ready to hit the screens Friday. He is confident about the movie, but wants to wait before taking a plunge into a third part for the action film.

"As a filmmaker, I would want to explore other genres too and not get restricted to one. In my interview, I had actually said that at this point of time, I am not ready to take the story forward. I don`t want to get into it as of now, but I never denied the possibility of it. I am very fascinated by Don as character, and I would love to take it to the next level, but only when I have a good script.

"So if someone had to ask me now, if I want to take the story of `Don` forward, yes I want," added Farhan, who was accompanied at the event by Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Kunal Kapoor and producer Ritesh Sidhwani.
