Character Error
During the first robbery scene, when Sahir is falling down from the bank building, neither his clothes, nor his hair are fluttering in the air, which is expected when someone is under such a free fall.

In the auto rickshaw fight scene, Ali's bike's front tire keeps changing from Continental to Zapper.

Ali's bike changes from BMW to Yamaha in the first fight scene.

Errors in Geography
The entire final sequence is not near Chicago as there are no mountains or hydroelectric dams of that size in the region.

Revealing Mistakes
When both the Samar and Sahir are falling front he dam, tears are shown rolling downwards from his eye, but when falling at that speed tears will roll upwards not downwards.
The cooperative giant Amul that is popularly known for its out of the box advertisements and billboards, has roped in none other than 'Dhoom 3' baddie Aamir Khan to highlight its message of good health and strength from Amul's products, with a beefy Aamir Khan lost in thought as he looks out the glass windows, sipping some and munching on bread and butter.

Bollywood's first film to be released in the IMAX format.

Raising the bar of pre-release promotions, came up with innovative advertisements with tag lines reading "It's Dhoom day. Are you bunking college today?".

Dhoom 3 released simultaneously with 3 Malayalam films but had more number of screens in Kerala than the others.

Most of the action sequences for this movie were done in Chicago and was handled by Hollywood stunt man Conrad Palmisano, and the entire stunt team professionals was from LA.

The set for the song 'Malang' was set up in Reliance Studios and took over 2 months to complete.

Professionally trained gymnasts for the song 'Malang' were flown in from the United States and trained in Mumbai for 20 days.

'Malang' is the most expensive song in this movie. Around the central theme of gymnastics, this song has over 200 dancers in the frame.

Aamir Khan says that his character in Dhoom 3 - Sahir, has been the toughest role till date. He had to undergo rigorous training to play the clown thief.

Aditya Chopra showed Amitabh Bachchan the Dhoom 3 trailer. He found the trailer awesome and messaged Aamir Khan telling him how he loved his work.

Aamir used one bowler hat throughout the film. At the Dhoom 3 trailer launch for fans, Aamir readily gave his bowler hat to a fan who asked for it.

The stunt wherein Aamir rides a bike on the rope was done digitally with only the background being shot as per VFX director.

Aamir Khan's first double role.

Frieda Pinto was considered for the lead role.

Aamir Khan's character was earlier named Jordan.
