We all have grooved to the tune of ‘Dhoom Machale’ at some point of time. The energetic song which had set the stage on fire with the moves of Esha Deol, was the favourite number of every party, social gatherings and of course Durga Puja celebrations. In the year 2004, ‘Dhoom’ got released which instantly became every youth’s favourite, giving rise to the craze of superbikes.
As the film clocked fifteen years, ‘Dhoom’ star Abhishek Bachchan shared a heartwarming post on his social media handle tagging the star cast of the film, showing his gratitude to all his co-workers and supporters. He wrote, “15 years in a heartbeat!
A film that changed it all! Especially for me.
Will never be able to thank Adi ( Aditya Chopra) and @sanjaygadhvi4enough for entrusting Jai Dixit to me. Their faith, belief and support came at a time when I needed it the most in my career.
To the audience, for the love and acceptance”.
Junior Bachchan also shared his fondest memory associated with the movie where Yash Chopra made Amitabh Bachchan watch the first teaser trailer of ‘Dhoom’ and appreciated the whole cast for creating such a good movie.
Marking this occasion let’s give you a little flashback by briefly remembering the story of bikes, robbers, police and their run of beating out each other. So the film revolves around Abhishek playing the role of ACP Jai Dixit, who is on his quest for the most wanted robber of the country Kabir, played by the handsome hunk, John Abraham. While cracking the moves of Kabir, Jai meets Ali, the funny guy from the streets of Mumbai played by Uday Chopra. Well, Uday’s career graph never went up but in the avatar of Ali, he did impress the audience with his typical Mumbaikar accent. Audience also saw sizzling hot Esha in her full glory as the ‘Dilbara’ of Ali who was a dancer and a secret member of the robber’s gang. The whole plot was a chase and run story with several iconic dialogues and catchy songs. Abhishek as Jai was the perfect man who unfortunately could not catch Kabir, though he was always there right in front of him (the bad luck continued for other two parts too) and we definitely sympathize with him. Overall, the movie had everything that is needed for a masala story and did leave its mark in the heart of every 90’s kid.
Along with Abhishek even Esha Deol shared a post about being named as ‘Dhoom Girl’ and how the movie changed her life.
Seems like it’s a day of Abhishek. As he celebrated fifteen years of his most iconic movie ‘Dhoom’, his other venture ‘Chennai Football Club’, co-owned with MS Dhoni, has also clocked half a decade.
