The trailer of the movie has received 12 million hits so far which is very encouraging for the makers of ‘Dhoom 3’. Vijay Acharya said, “ ‘Dhoom’ is a franchise that has a certain expectation from it. The trailer managed to show the audience that we were different this time even though we remained in the larger Dhoom world. When we made the original Dhoom, we wanted to make a film that would not bore us and wanted it to be just a breezy cool film. The fact that we chose to stay away from romance, drama and emotion, which was unconventional in the format of Hindi cinema, worked for it. What has worked this time is the fact that the trailer defied expectation and delivered something that you did not expect. There was Aamir, the kid and Jackie that you did not expect in the world of Dhoom. The best compliment I got was a from a group of ushers at the trailer launch who, after getting their pictures clicked with Aamir, said to me, ‘Sir,phaadu hai!’.”
