Reports of Salman Khan doing Dhoom 4 have been doing rounds since last one year. A leading daily quoted its source recently, “While Salman and Aditya have been discussing Dhoom 4 for over a year, the deal was finally locked last week post the release of ‘Race 3’. Adi plans to release ‘Dhoom 4’ in 2020. Vijay Krishna Acharya, who is busy shooting Thugs of Hindostan, will direct the movie .”
The reports also suggested that although Salman’s character will be on similar lines as of Hrithik and Aamir in Dhoom 2 and Dhoom 3 respectively, but Salman’s character will not be entirely negative. It was also stated that Salman will be donning long hair and would have a scar on his face.
And now, it is reported that Salman has backed out from the project. Earlier. it was speculated that the reason is that Salman doesn’t want to share screen with Abhishek Bachchan since Salman has a bitter history with Abhishek’s wife Aishwarya. And now it turns out that Salman has other reasons to reject the film. As per a leading daily, Salman had admitted in an interview that he is not very comfortable playing a villian on screen. Since people blindly follow the heroes on screen, he doesn’t want to give them a wrong message and doesn’t want his fans to indulge in some wrong doings by following his on screen character.
There were also reports that the makers are considering Shahrukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor for the film. But YRF’s spokesperson denied the reports saying, “Work on Dhoom 4 hasn’t started yet. There’s no truth to these rumours.”
Salman is currently packed with a tight schedule. He is shooting for Bharat alongside Katrina Kaif. Then he ll be packed with Bigg Boss season 12 for next 3 months. And he is also coming with Dabangg 3 next year.
