The Drona release held a night before the release of the film was certainly a star-studded sight. Those who attended included the Bachchan family and the leading cast and crew, Sushmita Sen, Zayed Khan, Harman Baweja, Ashutosh Gowariker, Anil and Sonam Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Farhan Akhtar, Preity Zinta and, hold your breath, Shahrukh Khan!
King Khan’s attendance at the premiere has sent the media in a frenzy, marking the end of the alleged ‘Bachchan-SRK’ war. However, Khan insists that there was never a war to begin with. He said, “All the disputes between me and Mr. Bachchan are media created and there is no ill feeling between us,” and added that gossip isn’t good for anyone! Point taken.
While the initial critical reviews are quite poor for both releases this weekend, Abhishek’s wife Aishwarya is all praise for her hubby’s flick. She says, “Watching the action sequences was fun, I know how rich it mush have been. The sword fighting sequences reminded me of The Last Legion.” Meanwhile, Abhishek nervously gushes, “I am happy, anxious, nervous, excited, everything. I want to film to do very well, I want the people to watch the film and enjoy it. We have worked very hard on the film and it deserves to do well.”
Stay tuned for Bollyspice’s exclusive Drona review coming soon! We certainly hope it meets the mammoth expectations.
