It just gets better and better, that's the rumour mill. Only today I find out that everyone is buzzing about a certain Mr. Khan being roped into playing the good guy in Dhoom 3. Yes, of course you already know that Shah Rukh Khan is being touted for the part of the bad guy, but that is not the only Khan that Aditya Chopra wants to create Dhoom with. He now wants Aamir Khan as the good cop!
How true this rumour is, I have no idea, but I am certain on one thing; Yash Raj Films want to go one better than Dhoom 2. They want to create more hungama and ensure another Box Office sell-out. And what better way to do it than get as many big names into the film as you possibly can.
Hrithik Roshan is what made Dhoom 2 click at the cinemas, but per Yash Raj bad-guy policy (that is not to repeat the same baddie in future films), he will definitely not feature in what now will become the Dhoom trilogy. So, Aditya needs to find a bad guy even badder than Hrithik Roshan, and he seems to have found one in Shah Rukh Khan. King Khan has not signed anything, but that is just a matter of time.
However, Aditya this time around might be ditching the combination duo of Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra, as he feels that movie lovers are getting a little tired of the pair. Abhishek Bachchan's performance in Dhoom 2 was panned by critics, and Aditya is a little wary of repeating him as the good cop for the third time. And if Abhishek goes, then Uday will go too, as it is better to go for a new duo altogether.
Aditya has is eyes on Aamir Khan to play the cop, but as of yet is undecided on who will play the part of his sidekick, with the part being written out completely if he can't find anyone good. Aamir Khan has been approached by Aditya, but as of now nothing has been decided, Aamir tends to take time when signing anything.
If Aditya does manage to get Aamir Khan on the cast, it will be a mouth-watering treat to wait for, as for many years Bollywood has longed to see the two Khans together on the big screen.
What are your thoughts on Abhishek and Uday being dumped from Dhoom 3? Do you think Aamir versus Shah Rukh in Dhoom 3 would be better than Abhishek/Uday versus Shah Rukh? Are you worried that both Khans will try to outdo the other, and therefore the film will suffer?
