Sonia (Priyanka Chopra):–

Sonia is the one character that went through the most changes, as we were writing. Sonia's character plays out at various levels and layers in the film. At one level, she is following in the legacy of her forefathers who have laid down their lives in the service of the DRONA and at many other levels, she is DRONA's only companion in this magnificent journey, she is the one person who introduces him to aspects of himself he never knew he had. It was a complex character, of a woman in supreme control yet living her life in the service of the DRONA.

Priyanka helped us find Sonia, even as we were writing. Sometimes, when you are writing a character for a particular actor, the actor's persona itself can be inspiration enough. And for me, Priyanka, was the inspiration for Sonia. Sonia, is a fantastical interpretation of the modern Indian woman. A woman in charge, a woman in control. A woman who is headstrong, vivacious, charged up and won't stop at anything.

Everyday, before we shot a scene, Priyanka, Goldie and I would read out the scene and much like her character in the film, Priyanka would explore areas in the scene and her character that were beyond the obvious. Her questions would only make us address nuances of the scene and make the scene even better. And it was not just about her character, but the entire dynamics of the scene. Sometimes, we would reinvent a scene; polish it, even a few moments before we were meant to shoot it. There was always an infectious energy on the sets. Priyanka brought with her, a rush of adrenalin, which put us all in top gear.

And that, in itself, is Sonia! She is a bundle of energy, who will grab you by your arm and take you along on this fantastic journey.
