Kanpur. Immediately after UP government declared 1 crore rupees reward for Dedh Ishqiya as it was shot in the state, Yash Raj Films has announced the next installment of Dhoom, which will be shot in the Mulayam’s native village of Saifai.
The film tentatively titled Dhoom 3.5 (साढ़े तीन) will have Abhishek and Uday reprising the roles of failed cops. Their characters will be called Daroga Dixit and Hawaldar Pandu Ali respectively.
Reportedly, Uday’s character’s name has been suggested by Mulayam Singh Yadav.
To make it more realistic and earthy, role of main antagonist has been offered to local superstar Kamaal R Khan aka KRK, who would play the character of Lootera Yadav that specializes in looting and eating fodder from the godowns.
However, instead of fancy bikes KRK would be seen riding on buffaloes to pull off those dangerous heists. His artillery would comprise of gulels and teer kamans with which he will defend himself and dodge cops.
“We were initially considering donkey in place of buffalo but the moment KRK sat on one, we found it difficult to differentiate between the two,” producer Aditya Chopra explained the reason behind choosing bhainswa over bikwa.
Aditya Chopra further expressed confidence that Abhishek and Uday will do full justice to their characters as they have been known to be as ineffective as UP Police.
YRF insiders revealed that the climax of the film will show Lootera Yadav as the former CM of Bihar who moved to UP after finishing all the fodder of Bihar.
