"It's my biggest and best film so far," Abhishek Bachchan says.
"I don't speak like this, do I? But Drona is different. It's the most expensive film I am associated with. Besides, Goldie (Goldie Behl, director) has executed the subject remarkably," the actor adds.
Abhishek and Goldie have got together after more than seven years (Bas Itna Sa Khwab Hai was released in (2001).
In between, in 2006, Goldie had plans of making a thriller with Abhishek, but decided on making an adventure fare instead. "Goldie was disheartened after his debut film failed. Later, he diversified into television; he wanted to make his company secure before he announced his next film," Abhishek reveals.
Abhishek also credits his directors for the performances he has delivered in films like Yuvaand Guru (Mani Ratnam) as also Sarkar Raj and Sarkar Raj (RGV).
"If at all Drona works - and I hope it does - Goldie should get the credit for it. He has worked very, very hard. I am sure, the Indian audiences haven't seen an adventure film like Drona before," Abshishek adds.
Abhishek has worked in the Dhoom series as also Sarkar and its sequel. There's talk that a sequel to Drona is in the offing.
"Goldie has written so much in the intervening period that he's ready to take the Drona series forward. In fact, the possibility of a sequel can easily be explored," he adds.
