Jodhaa Akbar release postponed to Feb 15, 2008

UTV Motion Pictures and Ashutosh Gowariker's much awaited epic romance Jodhaa Akbar, starring Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, is now slated for a worldwide release on 15th February, 2008.

The soundtrack, composed by music maestro A.R. Rahman and lyrics written by Javed Akhtar, will release on 9th January through UTV's new record label UTV Music.

The change of release date is due to the fact that Ashutosh Gowariker has been advised bed rest for 21 days with a severe back problem. The director was scheduled to be in Chennai for this entire week to finish the background score of the film, but could not move out because of strict instructions from his doctors not to travel.

Referring to his back problem, Ashutosh stated, "I am sad that this had to happen in the thick of post production; it is unfortunate, but it has to be dealt with."

Get well soon Ashutosh!

the scene where hrithik faces the elephant seems to be inspired from the movie alexander, where colin farrell faces the elephant...

@Anonymous - Ummmm..as far as I remember, in Alexander, Colin Farell is shown sitting on a horse when he faces the elephant whereas Hrithik is shown standing on the ground in front of the elephant..

But yes, it seems this scene was inspired by Farrell's scene :)

I'm glad you're a keen observer of things like me ;)

Thanks for stopping by buddy :)

Take care!
