Will try to convince Aamir to play good guy in `Dhoom 4': Abhishek Bachchan
Actor Abhishek Bachchan, who has teamed up with Aamir Khan for `Dhoom 3', says he learnt a lot from the perfectionist and would want him to play a good guy in the next instalment of the action thriller series
`Dhoom' series features daring theft plans, handsome thieves and bike chases. After the success of 'Dhoom' (2004) and 'Dhoom 2' (2006) there is already a buzz about the third instalment which is set for Christmas release. "It's third time around and we are looking forward to the film's release.
Jai and Ali are back and this time around, we have Aamir with us and what an honour for any actor to get the opportunity to work with him. You get to learn so much by just observing him," Abhishek told reporters at an event here tonight.
Jai (Abhishek) and Ali (Uday Chopra) were characters in earlier `Dhoom' series. "He is so helpful, caring and giving as an actor and it's been a great experience working with him. We will try and convince him to comeback for `Dhoom 4' as a good guy," the 37- year-old said.
The junior Bachchan has reprised his role of ACP Jai Dixit for the third time in the action franchise, while Aamir, who will seen in the `Dhoom' series for the first time, plays the main antagonist in the film directed by Victor Acharya and produced by Aditya Chopra. Off late, a lot of popular stars are playing the baddie on screen and these include Sanjay Dutt (`Agneepath), Aamir (`Dhoom 3') and Vivek Oberoi (`Krrish 3') among others.
"We have had our mainstream heroes playing villainous roles for I don't know how long. I did it in `Yuva' in 2004, my dad did in `Parwana' which was 1972-73. It's about doing interesting characters," he said.
Meanwhile, Abhishek appeared critical about his own body of work in the film industry, where he debuted with 'Refugee' in 2000.
"I hate all my performances and hope I don't start liking them. I believe that the day you start liking your work is the day you become complacent. I review my work, I always find something I can improve on," he said. Abhishek's last release was 'Bol Bachchan' and the actor says he can point out scenes from the Rohit Shetty - directed comedy film where he could have done better.
"I think it's the same with all actors. We are always trying to better ourselves from our last outing. So I am not a big fan of my own work." Abhishek has an interesting line up of films 'Dhoom 3', 'Dostana 2', 'Happy New Year' and a movie with 'Oh My God' director Umesh Shukla.
"I am looking forward to working with Shah Rukh and Farah Khan (in 'Happy New Year')," he said, adding the film will go on floors soon. Abhishek said he will start shooting for 'Dostana 2' in November.
