Looks like pulling off daring heists is what all top actors want to do these days- specially the Khans! Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and now Shah Rukh, all three have somehow developed liking for the genre.
First it was Aamir Khan, who decided to play the 'Joker' and rob banks in 'Dhoom: 3'. The actor played twins - Sahir and Samar - in 'Dhoom 3', romanced Katrina Kaif, and had the cops chasing him throughout the movie. From daring car chases to high octane action stunts, Aamir did everything to make his heist film look real!
Salman Khan then opted for a Robinhood-inspired character in 'Kick'. Like Aamir, he romanced another foreign import – Jacqueline Fernandez. But Salman went a step further and even sang all the songs in the movie. Stylish and slick, Salman's 'Kick' had a crisp storyline and a ' Being Human' angle that served as the perfect reason for his heists!
And now there's Shah Rukh Khan, who will be pulling off a heist in 'Happy New Year'. The movie that's supposed to be the big Diwali release has him leading a team of 'losers' to rob diamonds. His team includes Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Vivaan Shah and Sonu Sood. However, unlike Salman and Aamir, he'll romance desi girl Deepika Padukone, who will also be a part of his gang of thieves. From the underwater scene to the disguises (one already being shown in the trailer), Shah Rukh seems to have his own take on heists. And as Shah Rukh rightly proclaims, 'Picture abhi baaki hai mere dost'
With Aamir's 'Dhoom:3' already sitting at the top of the box office table and Salman's 'Kick' doing great business even in the fourth week, it will only be after Shah Rukh's 'Happy New Tear' release that we would be able to see which Khan pulled off the best heist film!
