MUMBAI — It’s not the first time that the making of Dhoom:3 is has been dela
yed because of
Aamir Khan. The actor has pushed back his shooting dates for this film so he can focus on the backlog of his other assignments.
As a result, the Vijay Krishna Acharya-directed film (he wrote Dhoom and Dhoom 2), will resume s
hooting with Aamir only next year. An insider from the production house says, “Aamir will resume shooting for Dhoom:3 in March next year.”
Aamir recently completed a month-long schedule for the film in Chicago with Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra. Even Katrina Kaif had joined them for he last few days. After that, Aamir had taken his mother on Haj for 11 days. In the past, the actor has delayed the film to focus on his TV debut, Satyamev Jayate, which aired earlier this year, and his forthcoming film, Talaash.
Now, he’s taking some time off from Dhoom:3 to concentrate on promoting Talaash till its release on November 30. He also plans to begin shooting for Rajkumar Hirani’s P.K. with his 3 Idiots (2009) co-stars, R Madhavan and Sharman Joshi.
Meanwhile, Aamir’s absence isn’t likely to bring Dhoom:3’s shooting to a com
plete halt. The makers will be busy with other portions of the film, which are far from completion. “Katrina will be shooting some of her parts in December. She will have a 10-day schedule in Mumbai, where she will be shooting some acrobatic stunts since she plays a gymnast in the movie,” says the source. We tried contacting the banner, Yash Raj Films, but they chose not to comment.
