‘Dhoom’ is certainly the most successful action franchise of Bollywood. The franchise started in 2004 with John Abraham, Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra and Esha Deol in the lead roles. The success of this film became the turning point of John Abraham’s career.
After that, ‘Dhoom 2’ came and the chase got bigger and better. Hrithik Roshan played the role of a cool conman who used fancy gadgets and unique disguises to get his job done. And recently, it was Aamir Khan’s show all the way as a revengeful circus star, Sahir, in ‘Dhoom 3’.
Now, for the next installment, there were rumors that Salman Khan will play the role of the main villain. But it appears that Shah Rukh Khan might be playing this celebrated role. According to Catch News:
Although ‘Fan’ didn’t work at the box office, SRK and Maneesh (the director of ‘Dhoom 4’) 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 (Aditya Chopra) is enough.
According to Bollywood Life, SRK is definitely on board. Now that’s a big news because we know that SRK became SRK with his portrayal of negative characters.
Remember ‘Darr’ and ‘Baazigar’? And have we not enjoyed his out and about villainous turns in ‘Don’, ‘Don 2’ and ‘Fan’? Phew, those are some serious negative portrayals.
Reports also say that Parneeti Chopra might star as the female lead.
