Aamir brings his magic to 'Dhoom 3': Yash Chopra

Khan: looking forward to 'Dhoom 3'

By Miranda Smith

Aamir Khan has decided he can be part of an ensemble film after all, and after months of speculation, has jumped on to the “Dhoom” bandwagon.

The award-winning actor will play the villain of the piece in the third instalment of the film, the CNN IBN news channel reported.

After John Abraham and Hrithik Roshan's famed high-octane wheel-action, now we will have the “Ghajini” actor show us his bad side in what could be the action movie of his career.

Khan will reportedly have a different, stylised look in the film and he has promised to hit the gym starting April to get in character for the role.

"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 [Chopra] 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 and I am sure that with Aamir and Adi together, they will both create magic to give our audience one of the most exciting films they have ever seen,” producer Yash Chopra told the station.

Directed by Vijay “Victor” Krishna Acharya, who has written “Dhoom” and “Dhoom 2”, the movie will also feature Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra reprising their roles as Jai Dixit and Ali.

Khan had this to say: "It is indeed a pleasure to be working with Yashraj once again. ‘Dhoom’ is a great franchise, most entertaining and full of fun. Everytime 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."

The film begins shooting end of this year and is slated for a Christmas 2012 release.
