Rumour mills were ripe that Amitabh Bachchan will also star in the next film of the Dhoom series alongside Salman Khan who is reportedly the leading contender for the movie. However Big B has now cleared that he is doing a film with Yash Raj Films but it’s not a Dhoom film as reported. He has signed ‘Dhoom 3’ fame director Vijay Krishna Acharya aka Victor’s next movie, ‘Thug’ starring Hrithik Roshan in the lead.
“There are a couple of films that we will be starting soon. For now, there’s a film with R. Balki and another one with Adi Chopra and Victor (Vijay Krishna Acharya). The latter is not a Dhoom franchise, but something else,” Amitabh said to a leading daily.
This will be the third time Bachchan and Hrithik will share screen space together after ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ and ‘Lakshya’. Though there are no details about his role revealed yet, we heard his character won’t be lengthy but an impactful one. The shooting of the film is expected to begin early next year after Hrithik’s ‘Kaabil’ hit theatres on Jan 26 2017.
