Mumbai: One of the blockbuster franchises, ‘Dhoom’, is back in news once again. Earlier, it was reported that Salman Khan will be roped for the villain’s role in upcoming film ‘Dhoom 4’, but according to latest reports Shah Rukh Khan’s name has been suggested.
In Dhoom 3, Aamir Khan was seen in a lead role. Now, Yash Raj Film wants to take things to another level. But since Salman has already signed Race 3 and is going to start shooting soon, the makers are considering Shah Rukh for the lead.
Talking about Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Dhoom 4’, a source revealed to DNA, “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 also mentioned, “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 an YRF film. Only a call from Adi is enough.”
It is also being reported that Ranveer Singh will be essaying cop Jai Dixit’s character, which was played by Abhishek Bachchan in the earlier three franchises.
