Chopra Brothers, including actor Uday Chopra, have reportedly decided not to take Bahubali hero nor Abhishek Bachchan in their fourth of the “Dhoom” franchise titled “Dhoom Reloaded” and to pitch for Salman Khan and Ranveer Singh, instead.
Ranveer Singh will play the protagonist, while Salman Khan will play the famous antagonist character in the film and Vaani Kapoor is rumoured to have been given the female lead role in the film.
Aditya Chopra, elder brother of Uday Chopra and owner of YRF banner, is reportedly keen to rope in Salman Khan and Ranveer Singh, its recent blued-eyed boy. Another reason for not opting either for Abhishek Bachchan or Uday Chopra is to make things easy for Salman Khan.
Ranveer, who is currently shooting for Aditya Chopra’s directorial venture “Befikar” in Paris, will be seen in the forthcoming “Dhoom 4” that may change his stature in Bollywood.
The last three franchise film of Dhoom featured John Abraham in its first series, Hrithik Roshan in the second, aamir Khan in the third and now Salman Khan in the fourth. While Abhishek Bachchan remained the protagonist in all of them, he will be replaced with Ranveer Singh to make it easy for Salman Khan.
However, “Dhoom 3″ director Vijay Krishna Acharya is likely to continue as director of the sequel and the shooting may hit floors next January in foreign locations.
expected to direct the fourth Dhoom sequel too (he had directed Dhoom:3). A teaser poster was released in December last year. Amitabh Bachchan is also said to be part of Dhoom Reloaded, but the female lead hasn’t been decided as yet,” he added.
