After Aamir Khan, Aditya Chopra wanted to take the Dhoom franchise to a next level. Hence the makers wanted to cast bigger stars like Salman or Shah Rukh Khan. But since Salman Khan has signed Race 3, the makers of Dhoom franchise feel that SRK is a perfect choice.
A close source to a leading tabloid revealed, “Adi wants to take Dhoom 4 to the next level and he’s asked Maneesh Sharma to write the film. He’s currently scripting it. For those in the know, Vijay Krishna Acharya aka Victor (director of Dhoom 3) is now busy with Thugs of Hindostan. So the film will change hands again. Maneesh will probably direct it as well.”
The source further added “Although ‘Fan’ didn’t work at the box office, SRK and Maneesh have discussed about working together again. Nothing is on paper as of now, but for SRK, all that isn’t required when it’s a YRF film. Only a call from Adi is enough.”
Well, we think SRK is a perfect choice as he has played grey characters in many movies like Don, Don 2, Darr, Baazigar to name a few.
However official announcements are yet to be made. Till then keep watching this space for more Bollywood updates
