A few months back there were reports doing the rounds that Salman Khan might be playing a baddie in Dhoom franchise’s fourth movie, Dhoom Reloaded. And of course, his fans were pretty excited about seeing Bhai in a negative role. But looks like his fans might be left disappointed.
Yes! According to a latest report in DNA, not Salman, but Shah Rukh Khan might be playing the villain in Dhoom Reloaded.
According to a source, “Shah Rukh has been approached by Chopra for D4. 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.”
Well, true that! We have earlier seen SRK play a villain in Don, Darr, and of course in his recent film Fan. The source also added, “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.”
Oh yes, it’s another great news that Ranveer Singh will be joining the movie and reprising Abhishek Bachchan’s role of ACP Jai Dixit.
