'The pressure is on Aamir'

'The pressure is on Aamir'

Action time

Actor Uday Chopra says Dhoom 3 is riding entirely on Aamir Khan, as the third instalment in the action film franchise has become bigger with the superstar being roped in. 

“Now, the pressure is on Aamir Khan. With Aamir, whatever he touches turns gold and he makes a brand like Dhoom bigger than anything else. We are all excited,” Uday gushes.

After the success of Dhoom (2004) and Dhoom 2 (2006), there is already a lot of talk about the third movie, where Aamir will be seen as a baddie and has been cast opposite Katrina Kaif. Uday is amazed with the response the Dhoom series has garnered over a period of time. 

“We did not expect it to be this popular. We knew people liked comedy and action but children really loved the film a lot. When we started Dhoom, none of us — Abhishek, John nor me — were big stars. I think the action was the star of the film and that is why it has done so well,” he adds.

The Dhoom series revolves around daring theft plans, handsome thieves and bike chases. Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra will continue to reprise their roles as Jai and Ali in Dhoom 3. It is for the third time that Uday will be playing the role of a con-turned-cop, so he does not have to prepare this time.
