Aamir Khan will be turning in his good-boy image for Dhoom 3 with Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra. Aamir will begin shooting for the latest Dhoom franchise by the end of this year, which will be directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, aka Victor.
Speaking about the film, Aamir said, “It is indeed a pleasure to be working with Yashraj once again. ‘Dhoom’ is a great franchise, most entertaining and full of fun. Every time I hear the theme tune of ‘Dhoom’, it brings a swing to my step. Victor’s script really won me over and I look forward to working with him, sharing screen space with Jai and Ali, and, of course, working with Yashji and Adi once again.”

Aamir’s last collaboration with Yashraj was in 2006 for Fanaa starring Kajol, directed by Kunal Kohli and produced by Aditya Chopra. It was the same year in which Dhoom 2 also released. No surprise that Yash Chopra is only too happy to be working with Aamir once again, “It’s a great pleasure to have Aamir working with YRF once again. It’s even more special that he will be doing ‘Dhoom 3’. I am terribly excited with what an actor like Aamir will bring to the ‘Dhoom’ franchise with his unique star power and level of performance. Adi and Victor have worked over a year to bring out, what I can now confidently say, is possibly one of the best scripts coming out of YRF.”
Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra will continue in their roles of police officer Jai Dixit and Ali. The film is slated for a 2012 Christmas release.
So will we see Aamir doing some incredible bike stunts a la Hrithik Roshan and John Abraham? We sure hope so!
