Aditya Chopra to direct ‘Dhoom 4’ next?
Aditya Chopra’s last directorial venture, ‘Befikre‘, starring Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor did not manage to be a success at the box office. The film proved to be a dud but this hasn’t got the director down and Aditya is all set to comeback with his next.
As industry insider quotes, “Clearly, Aditya Chopra is a brand and what audience expects is nothing, but unadulterated family fun with loads of Entertainment. No one knows what really prompted him to try something like ‘Befikre’, which was neither entirely original (considering its similarities with ‘Tamasha’ and ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’), nor supremely entertaining. The biggest problem here was lack of content for family audiences. Now that’s not what you expect when someone like Adi Chopra makes a film after eight long years.”
He further says, “Aditya is too huge a Bollywood veteran to let one ‘Befikre’ make him take a step back. As a matter of fact, what he needs to do next is instantly sprint ahead and deliver a biggie. What better way to do that than to pick up Yash Raj Films’ biggest franchise, ‘Dhoom’?”
Now if Adi comes on board as ‘Dhoom 4’s director, we wonder if his favourite Shah Rukh Khan too comes on board as its lead.
