John Abraham, Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez have taken the promotion of their latest movie "Dishoom" to another level. In a unique promotional strategy, John, Varun and Jacqueline arrived at a promotional event in a helicopter.

The lead actors made a royal entry at the event in Noida. John, Varun and Jacqueline arrived at Galgotia University campus in Greater Noida in a helicopter. The team travelled from Delhi airport to the college in the helicopter.

"It was amazing for me. I'm quite a daredevil myself. So, when it comes to adventure sports I really enjoy such stuff. It was a lot of fun and flying over Delhi is like we got so much to see and It was actually very beautiful," Jacqueline told reporters about her experience.

The "Dishoom" team was expected to recreate Bollywood's most expensive chase sequence and do challenging stunts mid-air. But the team could not recreate the scene closely due to rain.

"We enjoyed the stunt but after 10 minutes, it started raining and Jacqueline also got scared," Varun said. Talking about the scene in the movie, Varun said that they have not used a body double in the film to do the helicopter scene.

"There was no body double used. It is me and John hanging off the helicopter doing a nose dive and we are 50-60 stories up in the stunt. This is definitely gravity-defying, logic-defying kind of stunt which I don't think any other actor would have agreed to do," he added.

"Dishoom" directed by Rahul Dhawan, features John, Varun and Jacqueline in the lead roles, while actor Akshaye Khanna will be seen playing the negative character. The film also features Akshay Kumar, Parineeti Chopra, Nargis Fakhri and Saqib Saleem in cameos.

The buddy-cop film is slated to release on July 29.
