Rumours have been rife over the past few months about Shah Rukh Khan signing the fourth film in the ‘Dhoom’ franchise.

Reports said that the actor had been offered the role of the antagonist in the action thriller. Clearing the air, Khan at his birthday event yesterday said, “The film hasn’t been offered to me yet as I’ve told Adi (Aditya Chopra) that I am currently not free. I haven’t signed anything yet. Even I keep reading these reports. I should first finish this film, it’s taking time. I’m currently occupied with Aanand L Rai’s film.”

He added that he did not want to waste the dates of his leading ladies Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif, who are working with him in Aanand L Rai’s next. He said, “I don’t want to waste Anushka and Katrina’s dates. They have signed two films. Katrina has Thugs of Hindostan and Anushka has Sui Dhaaga. I want to be available and not waste their dates.”

He said, “With Yash Raj, they don’t need to offer me any film. Adi just calls me up and I do the film. But I’ve told him, Karan Johar and other directors that I am not thinking of any other film till December. They understand and respect that.”
