DRONA is truly a project of an international scale. And this has been pretty much apparent through the sleek promos that have been unleashed over the fortnight gone by. While the special effects are indeed looking slick for this extravagant movie that brings together Abhishek Bachchan and Goldie Behl again after BAS ITNA SA KHWAB HAI, its action is also touted to be belonging to an altogether different style.

That's because apart from top action director Shyam Kaushak choreographing some breathtaking sequences for the film, the film also sees the arrival of award-winning action coordinator Tom Delmar, who has worked on Guy Ritchie's much acclaimed SNATCH. One of the highlights in the film has been a high-speed car chase which Delmar executed in Prague.

Not just that, DRONA also has certain sequences choreographed by London based sword master Richard Ryan (who trained Brad Pitt and Eric Bana for TROY). He trained Abhishek Bachchan and Kay Kay Menon in sword fighting for which the weapons were custom-made in Johannesburg. As a result, DRONA sees the climax boasting of a brilliantly choreographed fight sequence between the two actors.

In addition, closer home, sword-based martial arts like 'Kalaripayat' and 'Chhau' are also featured in the film along with the much Sikh martial arts Gatka which has Priyanka Chopra seriously turning into an action woman. For getting the body language and mannerisms just right for this part, Sikh martial arts trainers specializing in 'gatka' were also flown down from Jalandhar.

As per the makers, DRONA is rooted in the vibrant tapestry of Indian mythology. It is the compelling modern tale of one man's spectacular voyage through the labyrinths of mystic myths and legendary legacies. Of a journey that will force him to face his fears and make him the hero he was born to become.

Also starring Jaya Bachchan, the film is all set for a 2nd October release.
