Since quite a long time speculations have been going on over who will be part of ‘Dhoom 4’. There have been rumours of various biggies but nothing has been confirmed yet. There were talks that the makers were initially considering Salman Khan to play the lead but as per the latest development, a leading daily reports stating that Shah Rukh Khan might sign the dotted the lines. Yes, what you’ve read is right! King Khan might be playing the baddie in ‘Dhoom 4’.

Aamir Khan played the lead in ‘Dhoom 3’ and it is said that Aditya Chopra wanted to take the next series to another level and it was obvious, either Shah Rukh Khan or Salman Khan would fit in best. But since Salman has already signed ‘Race 3’, the makers are considering SRK and we think, he’s the perfect choice.

Talking about Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Dhoom 4’ a source revealed to DNA, “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.” (ALSO READ: Dhoom 4: Shah Rukh Khan & Ranveer Singh to share screen space in the next instalment?)

The source also mentioned, “Although ‘Fan’ 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 an YRF film. Only a call from Adi is enough.” Now we just can’t wait for the big announcement to be made.
