The 2004 film revolved around a gang of bikers, headed by Kabir (played by John Abraham), who are on a robbing spree. Abhishek Bachchan played a cop.

"16 years ago, on this day, I was excited, nervous and confident! And then... the next day... on August 27th... Dhoom released! The rest as they say... is history," Sanjay Gadhvi tweeted.

After the success of "Dhoom", makers came up with two more films in the franchise.

"Dhoom 2" starred Hrithik Roshan as the antagonist, along with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. "Dhoom 3" had Aamir Khan in a double role, as twins who are expert thieves, and also featured Katrina Kaif.
