A poster featuring Salman Khan and titled Dhoom 4 from the trailer of Banaras surfaced on the internet earlier today. And the moment the poster surfaced on the internet, fans of the Dabangg actor could not help but rejoice speculating how wonderful it would be to have their favourite superstar feature in one of the most celebrated action franchises of Bollywood.
It also made many speculate that this might be the movie where Salman Khan will share the screen with Abhishek Bachchan and if this really happens, it will be nothing short of history. However, the poster is not a real one but a scene from the Kannada movie Banaras which is being released in five Indian languages including Hindi.
This movie is based on time travel and as the lead star of the film (Zaid Khan) travels into the future he gets to see a poster of Dhoom 4 featuring Salman Khan.
Interestingly, despite knowing the fact that the poster is from the movie, fans of Bhaijan are speculating that there is a possibility that Aditya Chopra has used this new technique to promote the fourth installment from the hit franchise Dhoom in a unique way and the poster is a hint for the fans.
The speculations cannot be ruled out because nowadays, promotions and presentations are equally important for a movie’s success apart from its lead cast and content. And for YRF, the leading production house of India that is currently struggling to deliver a big hit after a string of flops including Prithviraj, Jayeshbhai Jordaar, and Shamshera, Dhoom 4 can well be the saviour YRF is looking for.
All three movies from the Dhoom franchise had Abhishek Bachchan as the lead protagonist while John Abraham, Hrithik Roshan, and Aamir Khan were the antagonist in Dhoom 1, 2, and 3 respectively.
