After the successful release of Salman Khan's Ek Tha Tiger in Japan, Yash Raj Films are in talks with Nikkatsu Coproration for the release of their next big production Dhoom: 3 in the country.

The third installment in the Dhoom series is already in news for its new star cast - Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif besides Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra.

Avtar Panesar, Head of Yash Raj Films overseas, in an interaction with the Indian media in Japan, said: "We are already in discussions about Dhoom 3 and it is time to see how we are going to do that with Nikatsu in Japan."

Panesar said the two companies met at MAMI Film Festival a year and a half ago and the deal between the two companies was signed at Cannes last year.

Dhoom 3 is currently being shot in the US and the film is going to release by year-end.

Japan's oldest major movie studio and entertainment company Nikkatsu Corporation is already releasing the SRK's Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Aamir Khan's 3 Idiots. The movies will release on April 20.
