- Dhoom clocked 15 years on Tuesday
- Abhishek has been a part of all the installments of the Dhoom series
- He played the role of Assistant Police Commissioner in Dhoom
As Dhoom clocked 15 years, Abhishek Bachchan shared an extensive post about what the film meant to him. In his post, the actor wrote that the film "changed it all" (but more on that later). Abhishek, who has been a constant member of the Dhoomcast,shared his favourite memory of the film, which involved his father Amitabh Bachchan and filmmaker Yash Chopra, whose son Aditya Chopra had backed the project. The Guru actor recalled that after the first trailer of the film was ready, Yash Chopra invited Big B and especially projected it on the big screen and said with immense pride, "Ladkon ne achhi picture banayi hai."
"Yash uncle (the great Yash Chopra) called my father to see it. He especially organised for him to see it on the big screen as opposed to the edit room. After seeing it and then making the projectionist repeat it several times, when they walked out together, I still remember Yash uncle saying with immense pride, Ladkon ne achhi picture banayi hai (the boys have made a good film). Coming from two men we had grown up in front of and whom we idolised it was the greatest stamp of approval ever," read an excerpt from Abhishek's post.

15 years in a heartbeat! A film that changed it all! Especially for me. Will never be able to thank Adi ( Aditya Chopra) and @sanjaygadhvi4 enough 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 @thejohnabraham @udayc @imeshadeol Rimi and the rest of the cast. Through the making of the film we made memories to last us a lifetime and friendships that stand till date. To the amazing crew, especially Alan Amin, @anaitashroffadajania @mayurpuri Nirav and @vaibhavi.merchant for making us look, sound and move so cool. To the audience, for the love and acceptance. My favourite memory of Dhoom was... Once the first teaser trailer was ready, Yash uncle ( the great Yash Chopra) called my father to see it. He especially organised for him to see it on the big screen as opposed to the edit room. After seeing it and then making the projectionist repeat it several times, when they walked out together, I still remember Yash uncle saying with immense pride the boys have made a good film. Coming from two men we had grown up in front of and whom we idolised it was the greatest stamp of approval ever. Today, when I think about the entire process of making Dhoom, I smile! And THAT is the greatest feeling! #Dhoom #15yrsofDhoom #DhoomMachale
