The Yash Raj Film, which was set for a Christmas 2012 release, has been shifted to 2013 because of various production and post-production considerations. The film’s main stars are also busy with their individual assignments. While Aamir Khan is busy shooting for Reema Kagti’s film, Katrina is caught up with Salman Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger and Abhishek Bachchan is wrapping up Rohit Shetty’s Bol Bachchan.
No wonder then that, with shooting expected to begin in November this year, it will be difficult to wrap up the shoot and post-production by the end of next year. Therefore, producer Aditya Chopra and director Vijay Krishna Acharya (Victor) in consultation with Aamir, have decided to delay the release of the film to 2013.
Speaking about this, Victor said, “Dhoom:3 is very dear to all of us as well as to its audience who expect only the best from the franchise. While the shooting will finish in time, we expect the post-production to take much longer. We are trying our best… and therefore did not want to compromise the quality of the film just to meet the release date.”
