October 29, two days prior to the 27th Tokyo International Film Festival's closing its ten day run, was the day for Dhoom 3 to be screened for the first time in Japan as an official selection at the festival. Aamir Khan was in town, along with the director of the film, Vijay (Victor) Krishna Acharya,  for the film's press conference followed by the screening. Both events were eagerly awaited by the local film audience and were touched with high excitement and anticipation. Both were packed to the brim with an almost 100 percent Japanese audience. Dhoom 3  is releasing in Japan on December 5, 2014 in 100 cinemas, the highest ever for an Indian film.

Aamir Khan has become a well-known name after his film 3 Idiots became a huge hit when it was released in Japan in June 2013.  As a matter of fact, because of recent Indian hits in the Japanese film market, there is an upward curve of interest in Indian cinema in Japan right now.  

The press conference was packed with around 100 Japanese media from TV and print attending.  The questions came  fast and furious and many had to remain disappointed for lack of time. Then, in the very same Press room, a brand new BMW motor-cycle was brought in for a photo session with both the famous actor and his director.

At the full-house public screening of the film, the audience applauded the two again – some gave him bouquets, others a token of appreciation, making it clear that in Japan, Aamir Khan is now a rage and a star.
