Just last week, Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif attended an event to launch the title song from the upcoming Dhoom 3. Abhishek Bachchan wasn’t present for the event, which raised a few eyebrows. He had attended the trailer launch along with Aamir earlier, which Katrina and Uday skipped out on, but only because the two were shooting out of the country. For this event, though, Abhishek was in Mumbai – but it turns out he wasn’t even told that the event was taking place!
Word has it that Abhishek found out that the event was taking place only once he saw updates on social networking sites. According to DNA:
For some reason when YRF organised the event for the title song Dhoom Macha Le Dhoom, they left Abhishek out. He found out about the event from the Internet and social networking sites, when they began reporting that Aamir had delayed the event by a few hours because he rushed to Wankhede Stadium to watch Sachin Tendulkar play his last match.
Meanwhile, YRF maintains that Abhishek was never meant to launch this song, and it was always supposed to take place with Aamir and Katrina. We have to wonder what happened there!
