After a year long search for a new face to star in the next film in their super successful Dhoom franchise, Yash raj has decided to settle with the current top heroine in Bollywood, Katrina Kaif. Dhoom: 3 director, Vijay Krishna Acharya (Victor), along with Aditya Chopra made this decision after extensive deliberations.
"After almost a year of searching for a new face for Dhoom:3, we were still unable to find the perfect debutant to play the lead role. We even reached out to international talent but were still unable to find someone who stood out. Both Adi and I really wanted to be sure that the person we chose would be perfect for the role. Once we decided to go with a known face and not pursue the new-comer route, Katrina was the obvious choice for all of us. She is someone who we all know will bring tremendous enthusiasm and commitment to the film. The first time pairing of Aamir with Katrina will also certainly add value." Vijay Achrya said.
Victor who wrote the first Dhoom and Dhoom2 is directing also this time.
Apart from Aamir and Katrina who are making their entry into the series, Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra will continue to play their characters of Jai and Ali from the earlier films.
