"To @thejohnabraham @udayc @imeshadeol Rimi and the rest of the cast. Through the making of the film we made memories to last us a lifetime and friendships that stand till date. To the amazing crew, especially Alan Amin, @anaitashroffadajania @mayurpuri Nirav and @vaibhavi.merchant for making us look, sound and move so cool. To the audience, for the love and acceptance," he added.
Abhishek also shared his favourite memory of the movie. "My favourite memory of Dhoom was...
Once the first teaser trailer was ready, Yash uncle ( the great Yash Chopra) called my father to see it. He especially organised for him to see it on the big screen as opposed to the edit room. After seeing it and then making the projectionist repeat it several times, when they walked out together, I still remember Yash uncle saying with immense pride 'the boys have made a good film'".
"Coming from two men we had grown up in front of and whom we idolised it was the greatest stamp of approval ever. Today, when I think about the entire process of making Dhoom, I smile! And THAT is the greatest feeling! #Dhoom #15yrsofDhoom #DhoomMachale," Abhishek concluded.
Dhoom was the first action film produced by Yash Raj Films in 16 years since Vijay (1988). The movie, starring Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra, John Abraham, Esha Deol and Rimi Sen became a benchmark for stunts movie in India in its time. The film became a box office hit becoming one of the top-grossing Hindi film of 2004. Dhoom was the first of the Dhoom series. Its remake Dhoom 2, was released on November 26, 2006, and Dhoom 3 was released on December 20, 2013.
