SRK, Salman to continue rivalry over ‘Dhoom’


Some overambitious wags at Yash Raj Films inform us that Boss (Aditya Chopra) cracked the tripartite deal with Salman Khan to postpone the release of ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and accommodate Aamir Khan’s film ‘Talaash’ pushing back ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ to Eid also by offering Salman Khan the negative role of the thief in ‘Dhoom 4’. While the entire fate of ‘Dhoom 4’ (D4) depends on how good films like the Salman Khan starrer ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Dhoom 3’ does at the box office, what also remains to be seen is the camaraderie that Aditya Chopra and salman Khan will share knowing Adi’s proximity to arch rival Shah Rukh Khan. Also the big news from our wags is that SRK has already been spoken to play the baddie in ‘Dhoom 5’ (D5). Sounds ambitious, but knowing how Hrithik Roshan and then Aamir Khan picked up the roles in the subsequent films in the series after John Abraham played the baddie in ‘Dhoom’, the claims seem possible. The wag also says that both the creative brain Aditya Chopra and the writer director Vijay Krishna Acharya have already been getting ideas on how to make D4 and D5. Well, that will surely mean some more work for Uday Chopra who is currently working on the production of a Hollywood film for YRF. We are told that the first film is already complete and he is beginning to work on the next two from the YRF stable that will be out soon. We did see Uday Chopra trying out a few clothes and looks in his biker jacket with some bikes at the YRF Studios recently for a photo-shoot as well..
