Yash Raj Films has denied rumours that Vijay Krishna Acharya’s Dhoom:3 has been delayed. India’s premier film production company has sent out a press release stating that the film starring Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif in leading roles has not been pushed back.
“It is unfortunate that without checking, a leading morning broadsheet irresponsibly declared that the shooting of DHOOM:3 had been indefinitely postponed and that it would be shot after Aamir Khan completes certain other future commitments. This is absolutely baseless,” said the statement.
DHOOM:3 starts shooting in May 2012 and Aamir Khan joins the schedule in June as per plan.
Produced by Aditya Chopra, DHOOM:3 is written and directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, who had also written DHOOM & DHOOM:2.
Apart from Aamir Khan, who plays the anti-hero in the film, and Katrina Kaif, both Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra will continue in their now iconic roles of Jai Dixit and Ali.
The film is slated for a 2013 release.
