Akshay Kumar has finally put to rest the rumors about her starring opposite Salman Khan in the much-awaited film ‘Dhoom 4’. Those waiting to see the star zooming in on-screen in the hit film franchise might have to wait a little longer as the actor has rubbished claims of starring in the film. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Akki was asked if there is any truth to the viral social media rumour. “As far as the Dhoom 4 speculations are concerned, I have two words for you, fake news,” he said. The buzz about the actor being a part of the fourth installment of the franchise began after a viral tweet claimed that the actor had been “almost confirmed” for the role. However, neither the actor nor the production house commented on it at that time. As far as the viral post is concerned, it was proved that it was just a fan made poster. Meanwhile, other reports claimed that Deepika Padukone is being tapped to play the villain in the film. The actress is said to have been keen to land the role but had to finalize her dates before signing on the dotted line. The actress currently has 5 films in her kitty, including her ambitious home production ‘Draupadi’. Dhoom 3 starred Aamir Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Uday Chopra in the lead roles.
