Ashutosh Gowarikar Director Ashutosh Gowarikar is a relieved for now. A local court has rejected Rajput Sabha's plea which says that Gowarikar should not distort historical facts in his underproduction film Jodha-Akbar.

The Sabha wanted the script of the film to be approved by it. Rajput Sabha had filed a petition saying that Jodha Bai was not a daughter of Amer ruler Bharmal. The Sabha claims that historically there was only one Jodha Bai, who was the daughter of Marwar ruler Udai Singh and she was married to Akbar's son Jahangir.

Now director, Gowarikar has been asked by the magistrate Dinesh Kumar Gupta to give an undertaking within a week that he will not feature Udai Singh's daughter as Akbar's wife. And about the disagreement of the facts by historians, the court said that the Censor Board will look into these aspects before certifying the film. Jodha-Akbar stars Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai in lead roles and is produced by UTV.
