Hrithik Roshan’s superhero film has rewrite box office records. The movie surpassed the collection of Chennai Express and is now Bollywood’s highest grosser of all time. But withDhoom:3 around the corner, we wonder if Krrish 3 will be able to retain its top position…
Dhoom 3 is an upcoming Hindi action thriller film, written and directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya and produced by Aditya Chopra. It will be the third installment of the popular Dhoom series. Just like its previous two installments, ‘Dhoom 3’ already promises to be an orgiastic amalgamation of action, bikes, babes and baddies! In this case, the baddie in question, Aamir Khan, seems to have squarely stolen away the limelight.
The first part in the ‘Dhoom’ Bollywood Movie series saw a brawny John Abraham don the mantle of villain, which was taken forward by a light-eyed, bronze-skinned, Greek God-like Adonis known as Hrithik Roshan in the second film. But the third installment has seemingly crossed all barriers of pre-release hype, by roping in none other than perfectionist superstar Aamir Khan! Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra will reprise their roles as Jai Dixit and Ali Khan while Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif form the antagonist duo. The theatrical trailer of one of the most awaited film of 2013 – ‘Dhoom 3′ crossed 1 million views within the span of 24 hours of its being published!
Aamir was signed on to essay the lead role and the antagonist, while Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra will reprise their roles as police officers. Katrina Kaif was signed as the lead heroine, starring opposite Khan. Khan and Kaif took up special preparations for their roles. Khan reportedly learnt ballet, aerobatics and French technique of parkour, a method of movement focused on negotiating obstacles with speed and efficiency, while Kaif took paragliding training and singing lessons. While Bachchan reportedly lost nine kilos of weight to prepare for his role in the film. Rimi Sen, who played the role of ACP Dixit’s wife in the previous two installments of Dhoom series, was not approached to play her character Sweety.
However, in an interview she stated that she wouldn’t have done the role even if she were offered. Dhoom 3 will be directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya who is the writer of all three Dhoom films replacing Sanjay Gadhvi who directed the first two franchise of Dhoom. Stunt Director Olliver Keller was signed to direct the stunt scenes. Dhoom 3 will be released on 20th December, 2013 in regular 2D and IMAX formats. This is the first Bollywood movie to be released in the IMAX format.
