‘Dhoom 3′, with Aamir Khan, hasn’t gone on floors yet, but the media has gone ahead and announced ‘Dhoom 4′ with Salman Khan and ‘Dhoom 5′ with Shah Rukh Khan. A section of the media has proclaimed that Yash Raj has already locked the scripts and cast of the ‘Dhoom’ series. While ‘Dhoom 3′ will feature Aamir, ‘Dhoom 4′ (with Salman playing a baddie) will release in Eid 2014 and ‘Dhoom 5′ (starring SRK) is slated for release in 2015-16.
However, the news seems more like a bluff, since the gap between ‘Dhoom 2′ (with Hrithik Roshan) and ‘Dhoom 3′ (with Aamir Khan) will be more than seven years, since ‘Dhoom 3′ is expected to release in 2013. Hence, expecting ‘Dhoom 4′ to release a year after ‘Dhoom 3′ release, in 2014, seems ludicrous. Ditto for ‘Dhoom 5′, which, reportedly, is expected to release in the following year (2015-2016). “It’s ridiculous! The writer (Vijay Krishna Acharya) hasn’t even thought of ‘Dhoom 4′ or ‘Dhoom 5′,” a source close to the Chopras informs me.
Another story doing the rounds is that Aditya Chopra has cast Ranbir Kapoor for his next venture. It is, well, a rumor, with no truth to it. The fact is, Adi is busy with Yash-ji’s film, being shot in London currently, and hasn’t even thought of what he plans to make next.
