The third edition of the Dhoom franchise, directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, is expected to continue its strong performance due to the New Year holidays. Trade experts say Dhoom 3 is predicted to cross the Rs.300 crore mark at the box office. And its success will be a big boost for the multiplex operators.
