Mumbai: After huge successes of Dhoom 1 and 2, its writer Vijay Krishna Acharya aka Victor is all set to take the responsibility of directing ‘Dhoom 3’

"I'm very happy as I am directing 'Dhoom 3'," said Victor, adding that he was sure from the very beginning he would be directing the movie.

The first two installments of the film were directed by Sanjay Gadhvi.

"I like to direct what I write. When I started writing (part three), I knew that I would be directing it. I became a writer by default, I always planned to direct a film. I am at pre-production stage and am happy wherever I am at present," Victor told a news agency.

Aamir Khan has been roped in to play the pivotal role in "Dhoom 3". The female lead for the film is yet to be decided.

Victor made his directorial debut with "Tashan" (2008), which turned out to be a dud.

"It's the first film that I had directed; so it would always be close to my heart. Success and failure are a part of filmmaking. Of course, when you do and find no resonance, you should go back and find it," said Victor, who has also scripted "Pyaar Ke Side Effects" and penned the dialogues for Mani Ratnam's "Guru" and "Raavan".
