There was speculation that Bollywood hunk Hrithik Roshan will be seen with spunky actress Parineeti Chopra in the third sequel to Yash Raj Films’ Dhoom. The film was supposed to be helmed by Dhoom 3 director Vijay Krishna Acharya. Reports say the two actors are indeed working together in a YRF project, but that the film is not called Dhoom 4 but Thug. Whether it’s a part of the Dhoom franchise, is for YRF to make clear. An official announcement is awaited. Buzz is that Thug is a take on Johnny Depp’s Pirates of the Caribbean series. Long ago, there were reports of Hrithik playing Johnny Depp’s character of Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean. Looks like it was YRF’s Thug that was planned from that long ago!

If this is all true, it will be great to see Hrithik as Jack Sparrow! And also Parineeti Chopra reprising the role of Keira Knightley we guess. Parineeti apparently lost out on working with Salman Khan in YRF’s Sultan – the film went to another actress with spunk, Anushka Sharma. But the production house that takes care of all its actors made sure to give Parineeti a new film – and that too, with Hrithik! (ALSO READ: Confirmed!

Parineeti with her hot, new avatar will look awesome with the ever-so-fit Hrithik Roshan, we think! Wouldn’t they make just an awesome pair? It will also do good to Parineeti’s career whose last two films Kill Dill and Daawat-E-Ishq tanked at the box office.

Hrithik Roshan will be seen next in Ashutosh Gowariker’s Mohenjo Daro next, but he is more in the news for his link-ups with his Kites and Krrish 3 co-star Kangana Ranaut as well as Mohenjo Daro co-actor Pooja Hegde! Well, let’s see if he takes a special interest in the now single Parineeti Chopra while filming Thug!
