MUMBAI: Carry-on series in Hollywood are not a new phenomenon. We’ve seen it with the likes of the Rambo series, Carry On Doctor series and Police Academy series, amongst others.
The trend is now picking up in Bollywood too. First we saw N Chandra’s Style and Xcuse Me. Then came Sajid Nadiadwala’s Hera Pheri and Phir Hera Pheri, Rakesh Roshan’s Koi… Mil Gaya and Krrish and then came Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Munnabhai M.B.B.S and Lage Raho Munnabhai.
The latest on this front is from Yash Raj Films. While Dhoom 2 (D:2) starring Hrithik Roshan, Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek Bachchan, Bipasha Basu and Uday Chopra is all set to release on 24 November; the makers are already readying the third film of the series. According to sources close to the development, the scripting and pre-production work and the casting for the film is currently underway.
While John Abraham played grey shades in the first part, one will get to see Hrithik Roshan in its sequel. What’s more, sources reveal that none other than Shah Rukh Khan will play the negative character in the third part. On the other hand, Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra will also be cast in the third part along with Aishwarya Rai and Ranbir Kapoor (son of Rishi Kapoor).
Confirming the developments, a source from Yash Raj Films’ says, “The scripting of the film is nearing completion. But possibly Sanjay Gadvi, who has directed Dhoom 2, won’t be directing the film. The film will be launched shortly.”
