Director’s Note:

Dhoom is a journey that started in 2003. A light footed caper that became a runaway hit. It is said that sequels are arguably the legitimate offspring of successful films. However, we at Yash Raj Films always felt that the reason to make the film should be its content and not just the tag of Dhoom. With this intent we brought Dhoom:2 to you in 2006. This time, the cops and robbers set up hid a love story within its folds. It had a dream run at the box office and it created a potential mine field of expectations for us. Inadvertently we had become our own biggest competitors. So here we are ready with Dhoom:3. Saying that expectations are sky high would seem like the understatement of the decade. So all we’d like to say is that we want to share this film with you and in all humility, we hope that it is an experience that pleases, surprises and awes its audience. In the cacophony of today’s world, we’d like to transport you to a time when an audience discovered a film in the theatre.

Yash Raj Films will release the film in UK cinemas on 20th December 2013. 

 

Uday Chopra launches YOMICS

It was a big day for Uday Chopra as he proudly showcased his brand new venture, Yomics with Abhishek Bachchan by his side.

Uday Chopra hosted the launch event and introduced his vision for getting in to the comic space.

Uday highlighted the tagline of Yomics that is ‘Not Just for Kids’.  His efforts to revive the Indian comic industry were visible as he spoke about his childhood passion for comics. Abhishek Bachchan was in the best of his wits while supporting his dear friend and also keeping the audiences entertained with his nerve wracking humor.

Yomics has kick started with 4 major comic series including Dhoom, Hum Tum, Ek Tha Tiger and a brand new character Daya Prochu, which incidentally is an anagram of Uday Chopra himself.

In fact, his passion for comics has also driven him to write the scripts of two of the comic series including Dhoom and Daya Pronchu.

The comics have been launched in English and Hindi and will be translated into regional languages as well. 

Salman Khan and Rani Mukherjee also wished Uday all the success for his brand new venture by leaving a message on an audio visual screened at the event. Here’s a fresh beginning to the revival of the Indian comic Industry.
