Shah Rukh Khan to play negative role in Dhoom 4?
That either Salman Khan or Shah Rukh Khan is finalised for Dhoom 4 has been in the news for over a year. However Aditya Chopra has never opened up on this since the release of Dhoom 3. Now again SRK’s name for the main lead of Dhoom 4 is freshly doing the rounds.
As per a tabloid, after Aamir Khan in Dhoom 3, it had to be either SRK or Salman to maintain the star power of the series. Since Salman is already doing another action franchise — Race 3, SRK is the perfect choice. Especially because the protagonist is the baddie, and he does such roles rather well. Case in point: Baazigar, Darr, Don, and Raees.
Dhoom 4 to start in mid 2018?
While a source says that Dhoom 4 is in the scripting stage. And Adi Chopra baits on Maneeh Sharma for that. The source furthermore adds that Maneesh will apparently direct the fourth installment of the one biggest franchises. Since Dhoom 3 director Vijay Krishna Acharya is busy with Thugs Of Hindostan, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh.
“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. ” as quoting the source.
Hence the makers apparently are planning to start Dhoom 4 before Diwali 2018. As they seems not to wait till Vijay Krishna Acharya finishes with Thugs Of Hindostan.
‘Fan’ director Maneesh Sharma to direct Dhoom 4?
While Maneesh and SRK who did Fan together share a great working relationship. The source adds, “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.”
