A co-production between UTV Motion Pictures and Ashutosh Gowariker Productions JODHAA AKBAR, the first blockbuster of 2008, simply seems to be making its way to be written as one of the greatest cinematic triumphs of Hindi Cinema. Not only each celluloid frame of this film directed by Academy Award nominated director Ashutosh Gowariker, is soaked thoroughly with opulence but it has also broken box office records grossing 120 cores in 31 days world wide, out of which 90 cores is from India and 30 cores is from the overseas box office.
Mr. Siddharth Roy Kapur, Director, UTV Motion Pictures said "JODHAA AKBAR is an epic not merely by virtue of the timeless story it tells, but also because of the tremendous tribulations its creation entailed. But the response JODHAA AKBAR has received not only in India but world wide by both critics and viewers is worth all the hard work."
The films that have a history are those that entail an epic creation, but JODHAA AKBAR which has released across 25 countries in 1500 screens worldwide and dubbed in Tamil, Telegu, Dutch and Arabic, seems to be the one making a history on its own.
JODHAA AKBAR is standing a monumental testament to Oscar nominated film director Ashutosh Gowariker's vision and commitment. To compliment Ashutosh Gowariker's efforts are power packed performances by Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
