After Aamir Khan being a part of Dhoom 3, the makers of the franchise had to match up to his fan base and star power and hence two names came to their minds, Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan. But with Salman Khan being busy with Race 3, looks like SRK has the leading front here.
A source informed a leading daily, “Adi wants to take Dhoom 4 to the next level and he’s asked Maneesh Sharma to write the film. He’s currently scripting it. For those in the know, Vijay Krishna Acharya aka Victor (director of Dhoom 3) is now busy with Thugs of Hindostan. So the film will change hands again. Maneesh will probably direct it as well.”
The source adds, “Although Fan (Khan and Sharma’s last collaboration) didn’t work at the box office, SRK and Maneesh have discussed about working together again. Nothing is on paper as of now, but for SRK, all that isn’t required when it’s a YRF film. Only a call from Adi is enough.”
On the work front, Shahrukh Khan was last seen in Imtiaz Ali’s Jab Harry Met Sejal opposite Anushka Sharma and is currently shooting for Aanand L Rai’s Dwarf with Sharma and Katrina Kaif as his heroines.
