However, the news seems more like a bluff, since the gap between DHOOM 2 [with Hrithik Roshan] and DHOOM 3 [with Aamir Khan] will be more than seven years, since DHOOM 3 is expected to release in 2013. Hence, expecting DHOOM 4 to release a year after DHOOM 3’s release, in 2014, seems ludicrous. Ditto for DHOOM 5, which, reportedly, is expected to release in the following year [2015-2016]. “It’s ridiculous! The writer [Vijay Krishna Acharya] hasn’t even thought of DHOOM 4 or DHOOM 5,” a source close to the Chopras informs me.
Another story doing the rounds is that Aditya Chopra has cast Ranbir Kapoor for his next venture. It is, well, a rumor, with no truth to it. The fact is, Adi is busy with Yash-ji’s [Chopra] film, being shot in London currently, and hasn’t even thought of what he plans to make next. That’s the right status!
