HOW DHOOM: 3 HAS THUNDERED PAST CHENNAI EXPRESS

Aamir Khan on a super-fast bike has vroomed past Shah Rukh Khan’s Express train.

Dhoom:3, that got off to a cracker of a start on Friday, has become the highest-ever Bollywood earner on the first day of release, posting Rs 33.42 crore on December 20, Rs 30 lakh more than the Rs 33.12 crore that Chennai Express notched up on August 8

All eyes are now on Dhoom:3 to get past another Chennai Express record: that of the fastest entry to the Rs 100 crore club, a feat that the combined force of Shah Rukh-Deepika Padukone-Rohit Shetty accomplished in just three days. “I don’t believe in numbers. I want to win people’s hearts. What excites me about 3 Idiots is not that it made Rs 202 crore, but that people loved the film…. That’s what I want for Dhoom:3,” Aamir told t2

Dhoom is a pretty simple film at its core. Visually it is very big, but from the perspective of the story it’s very linear, which I think is one of its strongest points.That’s why it
has such a huge span of audience. From six to 60, everyone can watch it
Abhishek Bachchan to t2

I believe that it’s the most challenging role I have done in my 25-year-long career. As a performer, this film has stretched me beyond anything I have done before
