Yash Raj Films has reportedly roped in Hrithik Roshan for a new action thriller franchise on the lines of Dhoom

It's literally going to be Dhoom Again for Hrithik Roshan, just like the song. In 2006, he set a new standard for anti-heroes in Bollywood with his stellar performance in Yash Raj Films' Dhoom 2, playing a thief who steals high profile artefacts and jewels, including the British crown.
And now, the actor is all set to get his own new Dhoom-like series with the production house.
Hrithik, who has proved his action credentials many times over in films like Bang Bang, Agneepath and the Krrish series, is undoubtedly up to the adrenaline-filled task.

The Dhoom films - three in total - have pitted actors Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra against anti-heroes played by John Abraham, Hrithik and, most recently, Aamir Khan. Each has been a blockbuster hit but there has been some criticism to the effect that the series is now losing its charm.
Unwilling to shelve a winning formula, YRF boss Aditya Chopra has reportedly sanctioned a mega-budget series for Hrithik whose first Yash Raj project was 2002's Mujhse Dosti Karoge! The first of the films will be directed by Dhoom: 3's Vijay Krishna Acharya.
YRF is reportedly waiting for the dates of Ashutosh Gowariker's Mohenjo Daro, which stars Hrithik in the lead role, to be decided before they formally announce the project.
Meanwhile, Hrithik will have no film releasing in 2015 as he will be busy shooting Mohenjo Daro, which also stars debutante Pooja Hegde, and then the YRF film. Mohenjo Daro will, however, occupy most of Hrithik's time as he will be required to learn and speak a language which doesn't exist anymore.
Needless to say, 2016 may just turn out to be a blockbuster year for Hrithik.
