The villains in Aditya Chopra’s Dhoom franchise just keep getting bigger and better, after John Abraham, Hrithik Roshan and Aamir Khan, Aditya Chora has reportedly approached Shah Rukh Khan to play a villain in ‘Dhoom Reloaded’.
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, DNA India reported.
Some media reports also indicated that Abhishek Bachchan who is one of the most important part of Dhoom franchise might also get replaced.
Chopra brings bigger star to play a villain than a hero itself and his strategy worked every time. ‘Dhoom 3’ had managed to bring a lot more money for the film due to Aamir Khan.
Dhoom Reloaded is set to go on floors in early 2017 and is expected to be shot across exotic foreign locales.
