Casting coup: Ranveer Singh as good cop, Salman Khan as villain in 'Dhoom Reloaded'?

It’s been 12 years since the first Dhoom film came to our theatres.

Some things about the franchise have changed — the scale and expense, for instance, has gone higher with every film — while some have remained constant. The villains (think John Abraham, Hrithik Roshan, Aamir Khan) have always been a lot more flamboyant than the heroes, the leading ladies (Rimi Sen, Esha Deol, Bipasha Basu, Aishwarya Rai and Katrina Kaif) have been ultra-glamorous and through the ever-changing cast of characters, Abhishek Bachchan as ACP Jai Dixit and Uday Chopra, as his trusty sidekick Ali, have been stolid presences.

But it seems that Dhoom 4 may see a shake-up not only in the villain department, but also among the heroes.

Salman Khan will reportedly play the villain, and Ranveer Singh the good guy in Dhoom 4

And if the latest reports are to be believed, then it is Ranveer Singh who will step into the role of the all-around good guy in the latest installment of the high-octane enterprise.

Ranveer will be shown matching wits (and stunts) with Salman Khan, who is the subject of intense Dhoom 4 speculation.

There has been no official word from Yash Raj Films, the producers, Vijay Krishna Acharya, the director or either of the stars. But conjecture is strong that Ranveer and Salman’s casting will soon be announced.

Some reports have stated that a profit-sharing deal, such as the one between Aamir Khan and YRF for Dhoom 3, is being worked out for Salman as well.

Ranveer is a YRF “find” of course, having debuted with the production house in Band Baaja Baarat and going on to do a string of films with them. Even Salman has had a profitable association with YRF, having associated on a super-hit like Ek Tha Tiger and the upcoming Sultan.

It is believed that Dhoom 4 will be titled Dhoom Reloaded: The Chase Continues. Watch this space for more details.
