Dhoom is, for all intents and purposes, one of the biggest franchises not only in Bollywood, but all of Indian cinema history. The first film made action look cooler, slicker and sexier in Hindi cinema, which was taken forward to unprecedented levels in the next two movies, both of which turned out to be out-and-out blockbusters. Now, as we all know, the Dhoom films are far more popular for their villain than the heroes, which are always played by Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra with revolving actresses for company. While John Abraham set the tone for the suave action-oriented antagonist in the first installment, Hrithik Roshan gave one of career-best performances in Dhoom 2 and Aamir Khan was seen in a massy flick after ages with Dhoom 3.

That was quickly refuted through by a source close to the production house who bankrolls the Dhoom franchise.
