Ashutosh Gowariker was a bundle of nerves and excitement at Swades' Mumbai premiere on December 15.

"People will certainly make comparisons between Lagaan and Swades," he said. "Even I do it when I watch another filmmaker's film. I have sweated, toiled and laboured for Swades. It is very close to my heart. I hope it is loved by one and all."

Swades is a film about an Indian (played by Shah Rukh Khan) who leaves his country for a better life abroad and rediscovers his roots later.

Newcomer Gayatri Joshi plays the female lead opposite SRK.
