The determination to see Jodhaa-Akbar release on time is no longer unreal. Post-production work on Ashutosh Gowariker magnum opus is on full swing. The editing and dubbing are going on simultaneously.
Speaking exclusively to me Ashutosh says, "I'm currently editing the film in Mumbai. It's not an easy task."
Considering the canvas of the storytelling this could well be the director's toughest film yet.
"That isn't all. Aishwarya is shooting in Hyderabad. So she'll dub in that city. While Hrithik will dub in Mumbai" says Ashutosh.
On top of it there are dozens of other actors, big or small, whose dubbing has to be done under the strictest supervision to make sure that the Urdu dialogues are in place and the pronunciation is impeccable.
In fact, Hritik and Aishwarya have been working doubly hard on their dialogues to live up to Ashutosh's exacting standards.
