Actor Abhishek Bachchan has shot down rumours that he is doing the third part of 'Hera Pheri' series.
The 40-year-old star also clarified that the fourth installment of super-hit action franchise 'Dhoom' is not in the making right now as the makers are yet to lock the script. When asked if he will next be seen in 'Hera Pheri 3', the actor denied the reports saying, "No, 'Hera Pheri' is not happening right now."
While for 'Dhoom 4', the actor said he is yet to get a call from director-producer Aditya Chopra as he does not know if someone is actually working on it.
"We haven't yet got the script for 'Dhoom'. I have no idea if Aditya (Chopra) is developing something right now. And also Victor (Acharya), who made the last part of 'Dhoom' is busy making another film," said Abhishek.
"As of right now I don't know what's the status of Dhoom. But, I'm sure once they are ready we'll announce it," the actor added.
Sohum Shah to play Kangana's love interest in 'Simran'
Actor Sohum Shah, known for films like 'Ship of Theseus' and 'Talvar', is set to play Kangana Ranaut's love interest in upcoming film 'Simran' and he says his part is completely different from his earlier roles.
Directed by Hansal Mehta, the film is reportedly inspired by the life of an NRI nurse in the US.
"It's a very different role from the films that I have previously done. I'm playing Kangana's love interest, who will bring a change in her life. I have a very important character in the film," the actor said.
Sohum is first time working under Mehta's direction and he is all praise for the 'Aligarh' helmer.
"Hansal sir is very calm no matter how much stress is there. He always handles everything very calmly. I've learnt so many things from him.”
"I'm a very restless person I don't have much patience. But he never takes pressure be it for shooting on different locations or managing things on sets. He is an extremely cool person."
Talking about Kangana, Sohum said, "She is an amazing person she was constantly participating in each discussion on the sets. I wasn't nervous at all during the shoot because when you are fully prepared with what you have to do, things get automatically easy."
When asked about the present scenario of women-oriented films in the industry, Sohum said, "Industry people should make women-oriented films more often. Films like 'Pink', 'Queen', 'Piku' or 'Simran' they all have very different approach in their stories.”
"You will find all kind of audience in India. So, industry should offer them such films. It's very important. I, as an artiste, believe in doing something unique."
Sohum will also be next seen in the fantasy-horror 'Tumbad', which he claimed will be an entirely different film for Indian cinema.
"Just like 'Ship of Theseus' had a different concept, 'Tumbad' is also going to have a unique plot. And it will be completely different film for Indian cinema.
It is not an offbeat movie. It is a very entertaining film which will appeal to everyone," the actor added.
