‘Jodha Akbar’, a Bollywood movie which many were waiting and were being thought to be ‘the big one’ in this year’s start will be on theatres in April. Media reports point out that Gowarikar, Director of the film has been advised three weeks bed rest.
The movie is based on a 16th century story between the Mughal emperor Akbar, played by Hrithik Roshan and Hindu princess Jodha Bai, played by Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai. The film has been directed by Ashutosh Gowariker and has musical score from A.R. Rahman. Hrithik Roshan who had several blockbuster successes earlier like "Krrish," and "Dhoom 2", will like to take his path of success forward in this year with this movie. Hrithik as Akbar in the film will be seen wearing a lot of heavy jewelry and armour to showcase the royalty of the 16th century.
Kiran Deohans, the ad maker and with ‘Quayamat Se Quayamat Tak’ and ‘Kabhi Khushi…’ fame is the lensman of the movie. In fact after shooting QSQT in 1988, Kiran took a ten year break before shooting another film- Karan Johar's Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham and now will be showcasing his talent in this movie. Though the official date of the release was February 15 but may be now slipping down to April.
Film has been produced by UTV and rushes of the highly anticipated film have already generated interest among the movie-goers across the country. Media speculates that the production cost of this mega blockbuster is 50 Crores. With its delay ‘Welcome’ the super-success and ‘Taare Zameen Par’ will gain more at the box office.
