There were rumours that Salman Khan got the lead in the much-awaited fourth installment of ‘Dhoom’ franchise. The superstar agreed to do the film and Aditya Chopra started making plans for the look of Salman Khan.
A source close to the project told this in June 2018: "While Salman and Aditya have been discussing Dhoom 4 for over a year, the deal was finally locked last week post the release of 'Race 3'. Adi plans to release 'Dhoom 4' in 2020. Vijay Krishna Acharya, who is busy shooting Thugs of Hindostan, will direct the movie."
Some leading newspapers also revealed that Salman will be playing a grey character in the film and will be seen sporting long hair and a scar on his face.
But, then reports came that Salman has backed out of the film as he did not want to share screen with Abhishek Bachchan who plays a pivotal role in Dhoom franchise but the makers were a little hesitant on this demand. Salman had put this demand because of his past with Abhishek’s wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
But recently, Salman revealed that he did not do the film as he is not very confident playing a villain on screen.
Now, the makers are searching for a new face for the film. Reports were that the makers tried to rope in Shah Rukh Khan as well but the effort went in vain. Now, they are trying to place their bets on Ranveer Singh or Ranbir Kapoor.
