By Hindustan Times
Aamir Khan can go any length to make his character convincing. This time, the perfectionist is all set to learn a French technique called Parkour, which is a method of moving around obstacles with speed and efficiency, for Dhoom 3, reports Mumbai Mirror.
Aamir Khan decided to train on the technique as his movements in the film needed to be swift, according to the tabloid.
The source told the tabloid, "The main purpose of Parkour is to teach participants how to move through their environment by vaulting, rolling, running, climbing and jumping, which will help Aamir for his sequences opposite Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra."
