Yash Raj Films is reportedly busy chalking out a meaty role for Rani Mukherjee alongside Aamir Khan in Dhoom 3 , says a Mumbai Mirror report.
After a string of flops including Dil Bole Hadippa, Luck By Chance, and Thoda Pyar Thoda Magic, Rani did well in No One Killed Jessica. Her last big hit was Om Shanti Om with SRK.
Everybody said it was 'over' for Rani. But the actress struck back last year with her performance in No One Killed Jessica.
Last year,the production house had announced Aamir Khan's entry in the next film of the successful Dhoom franchise.
Following John Abraham and Hrithik Roshan, in Dhoom 1 and Dhoom 2 respectively, Aamir had stepped in as the super-villain in the project.
Yash Raj Films chose Katrina Kaif for the role opposite Aamir in the film. And now,Rani might join the cast as well.
The report quoted a source: "Rani might be seen in a role similar to Aishwarya Rai in Dhoom 2.
"In Dhoom 3, Aamir is playing the villain and Rani shares a fabulous rapport with him.
"In fact, she had once mentioned on a chat show how Aamir had been her best co-star among all Khans."
Initially planned as a Christmas 2012 release, the film has been postponed to next year.
The film is likely to go on floors this November, which gives Rani ample time to decide and prepare for the role after her film Talaash with Aamir is released in June.
Aamir will also work on his physique,a prerequisite for the role.
"YRF has three big films with the Khans - Salman, Shah Rukh and Aamir.
"Two of these projects are already on floors. This leaves only Dhoom3 open with a challenging female role.
"Rani too is keen on being a part of the film. She will take a call soon,"added the source.
Dhoom 3 will also star Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra, who have been a part of the Dhoom franchise from the beginning.
The film will be written and directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, who had written the earlier two films in the series.
