While on one side Aamir Khan is maintaining that he is not thinking in the direction of breaking records with his upcoming much touted film DHOOM 3, sequel to DHOOM series, on the other hand he nicely reminds us that he has been the first Khan of Bollywood to have established the so-called '100 crore club', which has now become a mania in the industry.

When we asked Aamir about 3 IDIOTS setting a new benchmark in Bollywood of doing 200 cr plus business, which has now been surpassed by Shahrukh Khan's CHENNAI EXPRESS, Aamir was instantaneous in replying. ''I was the first Khan to create 100 crore club in Bollywood,'' chuckled Aamir.

Having said this, Aamir also stresses that he doesn't believe in numbers and wants his films to win over audiences' heart than just minting money at Box-office.
''I don't believe in numbers at all. Most people might not believe me when I say that. But seriously, I want my films to be a huge success and win audiences heart. I want them to feel great about my films when they exit cinema halls. What excites me about 3 IDIOTS is that it has touched people's heart than doing 202 crore business. Everyone really enjoyed it and that is what I want and expect for DHOOM 3 as well.''

Ask him how he goes about selecting a film and he says, ''The first step of selecting any film is emotional and truly instinctive. The second step has to be practical.''

Also starring Katrina Kaif, Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra, DHOOM 3, produced by YRF and directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, is all set to hit the screens on December 20, 2013.
