Rumour mills say the fourth edition of Dhoom will see Akshay Kumar as the lead hero.
Earlier there were reports that Akshay Kumar along with Salman Khan and Ranveer Singh has been approached to play the lead in Dhoom 4. But now industry source now confirms that Akshay has been almost finalised for the role.
Earlier, John Abraham, Hrithik Roshan and Aamir Khan played the antagonists in the first three films in the Dhoom franchise, respectively.
Bollywood analyst Atul Mohan takes to Twitter to break the news:
He wrote, "A highly placed source has revealed that #AkshayKumar has been confirmed for #Dhoom4. Let's wait for official announcement soon."
This is not the first time that Akshay Kumar's name has surfaced as the lead contender for the role. Earlier, in October last year, a news publication confirmed that the actor is very much a part of Dhoom 4. But later, Yash Raj Films, in a statement, rubbished the reports and said that no such developments have taken place. The report mentioned above had suggested that Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra, who were part of all the three Dhoom films, may not appear in Dhoom 4.
It also said that former Miss World Manushi Chhillar may play the female lead in the upcoming film. In 2018, it was also reported that Salman Khan and Ranveer Singh are being considered for Dhoom 4.
