Earlier, rumors were in the air that Salman Khan will be soon seen in the fourth installment of Bollywood’s biggest franchise, Dhoom 4.The latest buzz reveals that India’s King Khan, Shah Rukh Khan will be bagging the role of the villain instead of the Dabangg hero.

Reports reveal that Salman Khan does not want to star in a negative role and thus, turned down the offer. However, the grapevine says that Ranveer Singh will be replacing Abhishek Bachchan as the cop. 

“Shah Rukh has been approached by Chopra for D4. Talks about dates and remuneration are on. Salman was approached before SRK, but he’s very clear right now about not playing a negative character. Shah Rukh has done it in quite a few films before, so he has no reservations. Also, it’s not a baddie in the true sense of the word. Dhoom baddies are cool and stylish. It’s more in the Don space, which works for SRK”, a source close to the development revealed to Indian media.
