Actor Salman Khan’s Prem kahaani may remain unfinished for a while, after being revived in last year’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. According to reports, Salman wants to take different route now from the loverboy roles that made him famous in a series of Sooraj Barjatya roles. In fact, he reportedly wants to play the exact opposite of Prem – the villain in Dhoom: 4 and Race 3.
A report , “Salman wants to play a cool, stylish villain. He has never played one before. His negative role inRace 3 is almost finalised, but discussions are still on with Aditya Chopra for Dhoom: 4.”
The Dhoom franchise has historically cast ‘heroes’ as villains – former baddies include John Abraham, Hrithik Roshan and Aamir Khan as the antagonist. According to source, Salman has demanded the same profit-sharing ratio that was given to Aamir in Dhoom: 3.
“The issue is a financial one where Salman wants a stake in D:4, just like Aamir had in Dhoom:3. Salman wants the same profit-sharing ratio that was offered to the D:3 star. Once that is finalised, he’s on,” the source tells .
Dhoom producers Yash Raj Films have reportedly not decided on the director yet.
Salman Khan’s next film Sultan stars the actor as a Haryanvi wrestler and opens in July. He also has sequels to his films Dabangg and Kick in the pipeline. As far as Prem is concerned, picture abhi baaki hai.
