Priyanka Chopra in 'Drona': For the film, Priyanka Chopra learned a martial art form called Gathka for a month and trainers from Punjab were called in for the training. She played Abhishek Bachchan's bodyguard (quite unbelievable!) and had to learn to use a weapon that looks like a wheel with ropes and small balls attached to it. Though the film sank without a trace, Priyanka shone through with her power packed stunts.
