Ashutosh Gowariker's Akbar-Jodha
Taking its cue from Mughal-E-Azam, Gowariker is set to launch another mega cinematic event. It will focus on Mughal Emperor Akbar's relationship with his Hindu wife Jodha. The director, it is heard, has hired a research team comprising historians and scholars from Delhi, Lucknow, Agra and Jaipur to guide him on a subject as intricate and complicated as the Mughal era.
The film will star Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai in the lead. Will it wipe away the painful memories of a well-made yet unsuccessful Swades? Considering it is in the production stage, we'll have to wait for that answer.
