Grapevine says that the new bahu of Bollywood, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made a plea to director Ashutosh Gowariker to postpone the release of her upcoming release ‘Jodhaa Akbar’ so that ‘Sarkar Raj’, her first film with her family – hubby Abhishek Bachchan and father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan, would release first post marriage.
Inside source from the production team of ‘Sarkar Raj’ says, “Ash has just finished shooting for Ramu’s Sarkar Raj in Hyderabad. She was extremely friendly and had fun shooting with Abhishek and Amitabh Bachchan. They enjoyed their stay in Hyderabad, behaved like a family but also interacted with other stars a lot. Not a single member of the Bachchan family acted high-handed. Abhishek was very protective of Ash and so was Amitabh.”
The source further added saying, “Ash was heard requesting Ashutosh Gowariker to postpone the release of Jodhaa Akbar as she wanted Sarkar Raj to release first, owing to it being her first film with her family post her marriage. However Ashutosh wasn’t fine with the idea as the producers of the film weren’t okay with its further delay. Jodhaa was supposed to be released this Diwali! Moreover UTV wanted to stick to the release date of January 25 for Jodhaa Akbar since its the same day when Rang De Basanti released in 2006 and got a lot of acclaim to the banner”.
So will Ramu’s sequel Sarkar Raj release before Ashutosh Gowariker’s epic movie Jodhaa Akbar?
