It was way back in 2006 when the second DHOOM franchise, titled DHOOM 2, released. The Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai starrer netted around 35 crore during the opening week, an unbelievable figure in those days.
It was thus obvious that given the brand DHOOM and a super star, anything could happen!
When DHOOM 3 was announced with ace superstar, Aamir Khan and super- starni Katrina Kaif in the lead roles, the canvas got even bigger, and one needed no soothsayer to predict that when the film releases, even a double hundred (200 crore) was quite possible.
Coming back to the topic at hand, and DHOOM 3 to be precise, the lead protagonist, Aamir Khan, has an enviable track record during the Christmas period. Just to recall, GHAJINI was the first film to cross the 100 crore mark at the Indian box office, while 3 IDIOTS had the distinction of being the first film to go past the 200 crore mark. Both the mentioned films featuring Aamir Khan released during the Christmas week. Even Aamir's TAARE ZAMEEN PAR released during Christmas, and went on to become a blockbuster hit, despite its unusual genre.
Well, given the huge buzz and anticipation for DHOOM 3 and keeping the above stats in mind, the brand DHOOM power and Aamir-Christmas combo, additionally boosted by Katrina Kaif's huge popularity, all point to a record breaking run for DHOOM 3.
