Dhoom 2 goes on the floors

Subhash K Jha | September 26, 2005 15:09 IST

Aishwarya RaiLast week, Abhishek Bachchan, RimiiSen, Bipasha Basu and Uday Chopra started shooting forthe much-talked aboutsequel to Yash Raj Films' Dhoom.

According to Yash Chopra, Dhoom 2 will bebigger, and more lavishthanthe earlier film, which gave a new lease of life to the careers ofAbhishekBachchan, Esha Deol and John Abraham.

AlthoughJohn has been eliminated fromthe sequel, his girlfriend has a prominent role.The film's arch-villainHrithik Roshan and seductive moll Aishwarya Rai will jointhe cast later. Both intendtoenjoy the process of turning negative.The actors, in consultation with Aditya Chopra and director Sanjay Gadhvi, haveworked out their characters' looksin detail.

'All I can tell youis that it will be nothinglike anything you've seen me do before,' promises Aishwarya.

Apparently, Ms Rai's contract stipulatesthat she slip into a bikini in Dhoom 2. Yash Chopra laughs off the rumour. "I don't think our contract can specify such things," he says. "But yes, therole does requireAishwaryato convey oodles of sensuality. She has asked for a couple of monthsto get into shape. We (at Yash Raj Films) are very clear aboutevery character in every script and what's required of the actors. Before Dhoom, Esha Deol wasspecifically briefed about the look and the attitude sheneeded to cultivate. She readilyagreed, andlook at what Dhoomdid to her career!"

So is it makeover time for Ash?"Notreally required," says Dr Murli Manohar, producer of Aishwarya's hard-hitting drama, Provoked. "She is already doingsuch awide varietyof roles.She doesn't need a makeover."

Adds JP Dutta, "I feel she has a truly international stature and cango to any levelif guided correctly. The very fact that I want her to play both Umrao Jaan and Gayatri Devi proves how much faith I have in her range."
