DHOOM 3, with Aamir Khan, hasn’t gone on floors yet, but the media has gone ahead and announced DHOOM 4 with Salman Khan and DHOOM 5 with Shah Rukh Khan.
Indian media has proclaimed that Yash Raj has already locked the scripts and cast of the DHOOM series. While DHOOM 3 will feature Aamir, DHOOM 4 with Salman playing a baddie will release in Eid 2014 and DHOOM 5 starring SRK is slated for release in 2015-16.
However, the news seems more like a bluff, since the gap between DHOOM 2 with Hrithik Roshan and DHOOM 3 with Aamir Khan will be more than seven years, since DHOOM 3 is expected to release in 2013.
Hence, expecting DHOOM 4 to release a year after DHOOM 3′s release, in 2014, seems ludicrous. Ditto for DHOOM 5, which, reportedly, is expected to release in the following year [2015-2016]. “It’s ridiculous! The writer Vijay Krishna Acharya hasn’t even thought of DHOOM 4 or DHOOM 5,” a source close to the Chopras informs me.
Another story doing the rounds is that Aditya Chopra has cast Ranbir Kapoor for his next venture. It is, well, a rumor, with no truth to it. The fact is, Adi is busy with Yash-ji’s [Chopra] film, being shot in London currently, and hasn’t even thought of what he plans to make next.
