Mumbai: Superstar Aamir Khan, whose forthcoming film Dhoom 3 will be released in the IMAX format this year, is happy that the technology has been launched in the country. He says audiences will have an amazing experience watching the films on it.

Written and directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, Dhoom 3 is said to be the first Bollywood movie to be released in the IMAX format.

"It's great to see IMAX coming to India. It is really amazing, you are transported into a different world and that's what you want as an audience," Aamir said. With the IMAX format, one can record and display images of far greater size and resolution.

Dhoom 3, YRF's third installment of action-adventure Dhoom franchise, is set to hit the theatres on Dec 25. It also features Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra and Katrina Kaif.

Meanwhile, the actor shared his maiden experience at an IMAX theatre while shooting for his 2001 film Dil Chahta Hai in Sydney. He ended up watching about eight films in one go.

"I remember the first time when I saw the IMAX was when I was shooting for Dil Chahta Hai in Sydney. In Sydney, there was an IMAX theatre about 15 minutes from where I was staying. When I saw my first IMAX film, I was just blown and was like, Oh! my god," Aamir said.

"There were I think eight or 10 films running over there (in the IMAX) and I saw all of them, sitting alone," he added.
