Dhoom is the most successful action franchises of Bollywood. Since Salman Khan is already working for Yash Raj Films’ Tiger Zinda Hai, the producer had only one choice – Shah Rukh Khan. Although the movie has not received good response from the audiences, it has managed to garner budget and ran slowly at the box office collection. In earlier Dhoom 3 movie Aamir Khan was starred along with Katrina Kaif.
After John Abraham, Hrithik Roshan and Aamir Khan, the buzz was strong that superstar Salman Khan will be seen as a baddie in the next film of the Dhoom series.
Filmmaker Aanand L Rai, who is prepping for his next film with actor Shah Rukh Khan, says SRK is quite charged up about this yet-to-be-titled film and is quite happy that the superstar is showing confidence in him, reports news agency PTI.
According to BollywoodLife.com, SRK is a flawless choice for the film as he is a pro at playing grey characters. King Khan is also ideal for the job because the actor has always shined playing the negative roles in movies like “Baazigar”, “Darr”, “Don”, and “Raees”.
According to an insider, “Adi wants to take Dhoom 4 to the next level and he has asked Maneesh Sharma to write the film”. He’s now scripting it. “Maneesh will probably direct it as well”.
Shah Rukh Khan has been taking up quite weird and unconventional characters (for him) in films like Fan and Raees and even his rom com, Jab Harry Met Sejal did not strike gold at the box office.
Recently Shah Rukh Khan was seen in the Jab Harry Met Sejal movie alongside Anushka Sharma. “Only a call from Adi is enough”.
Nothing has been officially announced either by the makers or by the actor. The last instalment of the Dhoom franchise, Dhoom 3 was released in Dec 2013.
