Aamir Khan seems to be following the footsteps of Shahrukh Khan to attract Tamil audience. The Bollywood actor, who is gearing up for the release of his prestigious Hindi flick Dhoom 3, will be in Chennai to promote the movie and to meet the local press today (December 17). This will be his second visit to Chennai after his last week's presence in the city to attend the 11th Chennai International Film Festival.
Hindi movies have hardly worked in the last decade in Tamil Nadu at the Box Office. Except a few notable movies, the films made in Bollywood did not have a good market here.
