Jodhaa Akbar directed by Ashutosh Gowariker is more likely to release in the first week of January 2008 and not during the earlier slated release around Diwali this year. When quizzed about the release date, UTV, the producers of the film refused to make any comment while the director Ashutosh was not available for comments.
“All decisions are made by Gowariker, besides, there are quite a few days left for the shooting of the film. A period drama like Jodha Akbar will take more than three months for the post production and processes like colour correction.” said a source from the UTV industry.
Jodhaa Akbar is a sixteenth century love story about a marriage of alliance that gave birth to true love between a great Mughal emperor, Akbar, and a Rajput princess, Jodhaa. The film stars Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai in the lead role, and marks the debut of newcomer Abir Abrar.
