'Dhoom' is my film and I am the hero: Abhishek Bachchan
Mumbai: Abhishek Bachchan, who has been a constant feature in 'Dhoom' series, says he is the hero of the film which could not have been made without him and co-star Uday Chopra.
In the third installment of 'Dhoom' series, Abhishek and Uday are reprising their roles as Jai Dixit and Ali Akbar, respectively, while actors Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif form the antagonist duo.
"...Dhoom is my film and I am the hero. Nobody can take that away from me. You can be the biggest or the smallest star but 'Dhoom' is about Jai and Ali. It is as simple as that. If the characters of Jai and Ali are not there in 'Dhoom', the film won't be there," Abhishek said in an interview.
There were reports that Abhishek was not happy with the way the film was being promoted.
"You should ask the people who decide the marketing strategy which evidently isn't me. It is my film and wherever they ask me to come I will. Obviously, I want to stand by it. If they feel there are certain events where they don't want me to be around, what can I do about that. Do I feel bad for it?..No, I don't give attention to these things," he said.
Aamir Khan, who plays the baddie in 'Dhoom 3', seems to have been following the mantra of less is more as far as promotions are concerned. And Abhishek agrees with it considering 'Dhoom' is a popular franchise in itself.
"I think it matters from case to case. In a film like 'Dhoom', I think it doesn't need any stars. It doesn't need Aamir, me and Uday. 'Dhoom' has become a franchise in itself, you can have newcomers and it will do great," Abhishek said.
Abhishek said 'Dhoom' has become a brand in itself and there is no need to go out and promote the film aggressively.
