In the first installment he dared to cast John Abraham, who was not even taken seriously as an actor of repute but Victor trusted him and changed his life forever. Similarly in the second installment when everybody was anticipating that Victor will cast some new comer like John Abraham he stunned the audience by roping Bollywood’s most dashing hunk and superstar Hrithik Roshan and wrote new history at the box office.
By then Victor announced his third installment, the DHOOM franchise, had gained such popularity that even superstar like Aamir Khan agreed to do the film happily.
