Abhishek Bachchan wants to be directed by Aamir Khan
The actor has recalled his experience of working with Aamir on Dhoom 3
Abhishek Bachchan has been recounting his 20-year journey in Bollywood with a post for each year. Recently, the actor recalled his experience of working on Dhoom 3, which was released in 2013. Abhishek wrote that the film gave him a rare opportunity to work with Aamir Khan, and that he would like to be directed by Aamir some day.
“Dhoom gave me the once in a lifetime opportunity to work with Aamir Khan and if given another opportunity I wouldn’t act with him, I want to be directed by him! So Aamir, if you’re reading this, kindly consider my request,” Abhishek wrote. “Aamir was so warm and forthcoming as a co-actor. Very helpful and accommodating. I can only imagine what a wonderful director he must be. Apart from his great talent he is so down to earth and fun loving on set despite what scene we would do.”
He also shared an anecdote of shooting with Aamir at the Six Flags amusement park in Chicago. “The park was shut and it was just the unit that was allowed in. The minute Aamir and I would get the shortest of breaks, we’d run off the closest roller-coaster and ask them put it on just for us. What a luxury! Good times!” Abhishek wrote.
Dhoom 3 was directed by Vijay Kishna Acharya. The film also starred Uday Chopra and Katrina Kaif. Produced by Yash Raj Films, a fourth instalment in the Dhoom franchise has been teased for years.
