Abhishek Bachchan wants Aamir Khan to play 'good guy' in 'Dhoom 4'
For actor Abhishek Bachchan, it was an honour to work with Aamir Khan, who plays a villain in "Dhoom 3". He hopes to work with Aamir again in the fourth instalment of the franchise, and says he could play the "good guy".
"'Dhoom' is 'Dhoom' and it's the third time round. Jai and Ali are back and this time we have Aamir with us! What an honour for any actor to get the opportunity to work with Aamir. You just get to learn so much by just observing him," the 37-year-old said here at the unveiling of the Mandate magazine cover, featuring him and his megastar father Amitabh Bachchan.
Abhishek only has a string of praises for Aamir.
"He (Aamir) is so helpful and so caring and giving as an actor that I am honoured to have worked with him. Let's see, we'll try and convince him to come back in 'Dhoom 4' as a good guy," he added.
Asked about the trend of heroes playing the bad guy in films, Abhishek said it's nothing new.
"We have had our mainstream heroes doing villain roles for very long. I did it in 'Yuva' in 2004, my dad did it in 'Parwana' (1971). I think heroes have always done it and it's got to do with the character, it's not about being a good guy or a bad guy," Abhishek said.
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan played negative roles in movies "Darr" (1993), "Baazigar" (1993), "Anjaam" (1994) and the recent "Don" franchise.
Akshay Kumar will be seen as a baddie in "Once Upon Ay Time in Mumbai Dobaara!". Ajay Devgn played a negative character in "Deewangee" (2002).
