After the debacle of Zero (2018), Shah Rukh Khan has not signed any film. While the actor is devoting a lot of time to strengthen his production house, Red Chillies Entertainment, fans are curious to know what he is next starring in. Though there is no official confirmation, rumours are strong that Yash Raj Films is bankrolling Dhoom 4 for him with Ali Abbas Zafar coming onboard to helm the project.

Ali Abbas Zafar, who began his journey with Yash Raj Films, is known for pulling off larger-than-life films. The makers at YRF are also confident about his directorial abilities and hence they are keen to pass on to the directorial baton to him from Vijay Krishna Acharya who is still trying to come to terms with the epic failure of his Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan starrer Thugs of Hindostan (2018).

Well, we are surely excited about Ali Abbas Zafar calling the shots for Dhoom 4. However, an official announcement is awaited.
