This action-packed film releases in South Africa on Friday, 20 December, to coincide with its global launch. Dhoom:3 is scheduled to blast its way across a number of Ster-Kinekor sites, including Ster-Kinekor Gateway in Durban, Vincent Park in East London, The Bridge in Port Elizabeth, The Zone at Rosebank in Johannesburg, Carnival City in Brakpan, Brooklyn in Pretoria and Cavendish Square in Cape Town.

Says Fiaz Mahomed, CEO of Ster-Kinekor Theatres: “We are delighted that we are now able to offer Bollywood films at more of our cinemas, as they continue to be an important focus for us. This is as a direct result of the digital conversion across all our sites that enables us to access more prints and screen these in more of our cinemas. With the digital roll-out now complete, the timing is perfect to do justice to a huge Bollywood blockbuster such as Dhoom:3. Bollywood films are larger than life in their storylines and production, and deserve the larger than life cinema experience.”

From producer Aditya Chopra and director Vijay Krishna Acharya, and starring Aamir Khan, Dhoom:3 is the next installment in one of the most famous franchises in box office history. Also starring Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra and Katrina Kaif, the film tells the story of the adventures of Jai Dixit, a no-nonsense cop, and his scatterbrained partner, Ali.

Once again, the film will introduce a new modus operandi as it follows the path of police inspector Dixit (Abhishek Bachchan) and his sidekick, Ali (Uday Chopra), in their characteristic fight against crime. They come up against the charismatic and versatile Sahir (Aamir Khan), in his first role as the anti-hero.

Many of the actors were put through their paces as they had to learn a number of new skills for their roles in the film: Khan practiced ballet, diving, aerobatics and parkour (a holistic training discipline), while Kaif was a student of paragliding and singing. This blockbuster movie was filmed in Switzerland, Chicago and Mumbai.

The success of Dhoom and Dhoom:2 have established this as Bollywood’s pre-eminent franchise. Cited as one of the most expensive Bollywood movies ever to have been produced, and with its stellar cast, the third film in the franchise aims to set a new benchmark amongst action films.

Dhoom:3 releases in Ster-Kinekor cinemas at Gateway Theatre of Shopping, Vincent Park, The Bridge, Carnival City, The Zone at Rosebank, Brooklyn and Cavendish Square from Friday, 20 December. To view the trailer of Dhoom:3, click here.
