New Delhi: After John Abraham, Hrithik Roshan and Aamir Khan, the buzz was strong that superstar Salman Khan will be seen in Yash Raj Films' glamourous actioner 'Dhoom' franchise.

The rumour mills were churning out goss about Salman being a part of 'Dhoom 4'. but now all that seems to have hit a standstill, especially after he signed 'Race 3'. but the latest buzz right now is that not Salman but YRF favourite Shah Rukh Khan might be roped in to play the lead in part 4.

According to BollywoodLife.com, SRK is a pro in playing grey shades with conviction on-screen, and in 'Dhoom' franchise the protagonist is essentially a baddie, so we might see him in top form once again.

A source has been quoted as saying, “Adi wants to take Dhoom 4 to the next level and he’s asked Maneesh Sharma to write the film. He’s currently scripting it. For those in the know, Vijay Krishna Acharya aka Victor (director of Dhoom 3) is now busy with Thugs of Hindostan. So the film will change hands again. Maneesh will probably direct it as well.”

Shah Rukh and Maneesh previously worked together in 'FAN' which tanked at the Box Office. “Although Fan didn’t work at the box office, SRK and Maneesh have discussed about working together again. Nothing is on paper as of now, but for SRK, all that isn’t required when it’s a YRF film. Only a call from Adi is enough”, a source told BollywoodLife.com.

Nothing has been officially announced either by the makers or by the actor. '
