Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif’s thriller Dhoom 3: Back in Action, produced by Yash Raj Films, has generated a lot of interest in audiences. But many of the teenyboppers who are impressed with the trailers of the film must’ve been quite young when the earlier films from the Dhoom franchise released – 2004 and 2006. And so, we decided to share some trivia of Dhoom, Dhoom:2 and Dhoom 3.

Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif did not use any safety precautions while doing the acrobatic stunts in Dhoom 3 for the song Malang. They trained really hard to get it right, and they did get it right!

Aishwarya on her part later said she was not comfortable doing the kissing scene with Hrithik. Ahem…yeah, right!
