There are rumors making the rounds that the creators of the ‘Dhoom’ franchise have approached Akshay Kumar to play the lead role in its 4th installment.
Around 4 years ago i.e back in 2015, Yash Raj Films had released a teaser video announcing Dhoom reloaded which made the fans excited & impatient both at the same time. Ever since then reports started making the rounds about who will be playing the antagonist in the 4th installment. From SRK to Salman Khan, the names of several leading superstars from Bollywood popped in for the main role. Now as per the recent reports that emerged in Mid Day, Akshay Kumar is in talks to be a part of Dhoom 4.
Clearing the air on this topic, Yash Raj Films released a statement, terming all these rumors a total baseless imagination. The statement read,
“The article “Dhoom to get Khiladi’s touch?” printed in today’s Mid-day is absolutely incorrect and baseless. Dhoom is an extremely important franchise for us but currently, we do not have an idea or script for Dhoom 4. We are always available to clarify any and all queries and strongly urge and request you to kindly double-check stories with us well in advance for us to be able to provide you with all accurate facts.”
But a source shared with Mid-day,
“Akshay’s larger-than-life villain act in 2.0  convinced Adi that he would be the perfect fit for the next instalment of Dhoom. The duo has had some meetings, including the first round of narration. The role is of a suave underworld don and is much more nuanced than the villains of the previous editions. If all goes well, Akshay and Aditya will make an announcement by the year-end. Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra may not appear in the fourth part while beauty queen Manushi Chhillar may play the female lead.”
Only time will tell whether these rumors are true or just an act of imagination.
