'Drona' reminds me of my childhood: Aishwarya

Kolkata, Oct 3 (IANS) Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai says that "Drona", in which hubby Abhishek Bachchan plays the title role, reminds her of her childhood days.

"'Drona' is a film that is rarely made in Bollywood. Not only will kids enjoy the film, elders too will revisit their childhood fantasies while watching the movie. Even I was reminded of my childhood days - when my world used to revolve around fairy tales like the stories of 'Amar Chitra Katha' and the horses, angels, knights and magic in it," Aishwarya told reporters here Friday.

Aishwarya, the brand ambassadress of Longines, was here for the press conference of Longines Sports Watch collection.

Commenting on Abhishek's performance in "Drona", she said: "If you are asking a wife to rate her husband, then I will tend to get partial. But if you are asking an actor to comment on another, then I will say that Abhishek is a dedicated actor and knows his job well."

Directed by Goldie Behl, "Drona" is a fantasy thriller. It was released Thursday.

Aishwarya also walked the ramp showcasing the new collection of HydroConquest watches for the first time in Kolkata.

"This is the first time that I have walked the ramp in Kolkata. The city has always been special for my family (the Bachchans) and for me. And since it's the auspicious time of Durga Puja, I requested Longines to launch their collection in Kolkata first. The next destination is Delhi. We will go there Saturday," the actress said.

On her experience of walking the ramp after so many years, Aishwarya said it felt like "the old days are back".

Aishwarya has just finished shooting for Shankar's "Robot" that stars Rajnikant in the male lead. She is to soon start shooting for Mani Ratnam's "Ravana" with Abhishek.
