The Superstar is in talks to be the new villain of the franchise, while the
Bajirao Mastani star might replace Abhishek Bachchan...
The villains in Aditya Chopra’s
Dhoom franchise just keep getting bigger and better — after John Abraham, Hrithik Roshan and Aamir Khan, now Adi is keen to cast Shah Rukh Khan in the fourth installment of the franchise with Ranveer Singh taking over from Abhishek Bachchan as the good cop. While earlier reports suggested that Salman Khan would be playing the villain in the film, he signed up for YRF's Tiger Zinda Hai and Race 3. He will also be doing Dabbang 3 and Tubelight and so, doesn't have any dates.
While there were other reports that SRK would be doing a warrior film with Aditya Chopra, looks like he might sign up for
Dhoom Reloaded too. As a source close to the development reveals, "Shah Rukh has been approached by Chopra for D:4. Talks about dates and remuneration are on. Salman was approached before SRK, but he’s very clear right now about not playing a negative character. Shah Rukh has done it in quite a few films before, so he has no reservations. Also, it’s not a baddie in the true sense of the word. Dhoom baddies are cool and stylish. It’s more in the Don space, which works for SRK."
The source also notes, "Adi’s strategy worked with each
Dhoom being bigger than the earlier one at the box-office In Dhoom Reloaded, while Ranveer will now be ACP Jai Dixit, Uday Chopra, who played Ali, will sit out of this project."
