It now seems like London, New York and Switzerland are a passe, as far as favourite foreign Bollywood shooting destinations are concerned. Makers are now searching for newer locations and the last few years have seen South East Asian countries and Australia emerge as their new haunts. In fact, Akshay Kumar's Anees Bazmee directed SINGH IS KINNG is scheduled to be shot at Australia's exotic Gold Coast.

However, Africa and to be more specific, Namibia, is the latest hotspot. While Aamir Khan's GHAJINI remake was extensively shot in Namibia and its deserts, the latest unit to have hit the country is that of Goldie Behl's DRONA.

As per sources, the SFX extravaganza, featuring Abhishek Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra is presently being shot there. During the schedule, many important sequences, integral to the script are expected to be canned.
