Madhya Pradesh High Court has given some relief to Ronnie Screwvala and Ashutosh Gowarikar as it declared to eliminate the ban on Jodhaa Akbar in the state. Earlier this week, the distributors decided to take legal help against MP Government's ban on the movie. MP Government had banned Jodhaa Akbar claiming that they wanted to avoid any kind of Law&Order problem over screening of it.
Speaking on the verdict issued, Ashutosh welcomed the verdict with relief and admiration for the High Court judgment. He said that, "The film portrays love between two cultures and religions through a marriage of alliance between a Mughal emperor and a Rajput princess. This is an alliance that took place 450 years ago; an alliance that we need to respect, admire and learn from even today. He also adds that a disclaimer had been inserted at the start of the film saying that the film is a work of fiction and it draws from history but at the same time it is not the exact representation of it and there can be other viewpoints".
