With major names being attached to almost every part of the Dhoom series, it’s no surprise that the speculation spanned from Salman Khan to Aamir Khan once again for the latest sequel. However, if you thought that the above two had anything to do with the upcoming part, think again.
According to DNA India, Shah Rukh Khan is the chosen one for Dhoom 4. Although that has been in the news for over a year, it’s now beginning to look like a plan after a source revealed some insider news.
“Adi [Aditiya Chopra] 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 revealed.
Although we wouldn’t have expected any one less than the likes of Aamir Khan, SRK or Salman to maintain the star power of the series, we do feel that 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.
According to the source, Maneesh and SRK already share a great working relationship. “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.”
