Abhishek Bachchan and Aamir Khan worked together in 2013 film Dhoom 3. But now, Junior B wants to be directed by Mr Perfectionist. The Guru actor was talking about his films released in 2013 when he wrote about the third film in the Dhoom franchise and requested Aamir to direct him in a film.
Sharing a poster of Dhoom 3, Abhishek wrote, “#RoadTo20 Year-2013 #Dhoom3 Back in the saddle of the Dhoom franchise. This time directed by Victor an old and dear friend of mine. Victor was the writer of the first 2 Dhooms. He also wrote the dialogues for Guru and Raavan. To be directed by him was… I guess, overdue. My brother @udayc is always a blast to work with. And if that work entails him playing Ali then it’s even more fun. This time the Dhoom boys were joined by @katrinakaif My second film with her. She did her first ever Hindi film with me, Sarkar (sic).”
Talking about working with Aamir Khan, he said, “Dhoom gave me the once in a lifetime opportunity to work with @_aamirkhan and if given another opportunity I wouldn’t act with him, I want to be directed by him!!! So Aamir, if you’re reading this, kindly consider my request (sic).”
He added, “Aamir was so warm and forthcoming as a co-actor. Very helpful and accommodating. I can only imagine what a wonderful director he must be. Apart from his great talent he is so down to earth and fun loving on set despite what scene we would do.”
Abhishek Bachchan also shared a fun memory with Aamir Khan from the sets of Dhoom 3. He said, “One of my fondest memories was when we shot a few scenes in Six Flags amusement park in Chicago. The park was shut and it was just the unit that was allowed in. The minute Aamir and I would get the shortest of breaks, we’d run off the the closest roller-coaster and ask them put it on just for us. What a luxury!!! Good times! (sic).”
Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, Dhoom 3 saw Aamir Khan in a double role of Sahir Iqbal Khan and Samar Iqbal Khan. Abhishek Bachchan reprised the role of ACP Jai Dixit, while Uday Chopra played Ali. Following the concept of previous two Dhoom films, Dhoom 3 is also revolves around a heist. It was among the highest grossing films of 2013.
