Ashutosh Gowarikar's historical epic Jodhaa Akbar is weeks away from its release. But the Hritik Roshan and Aishwarya Bachchan starer movie is already in trouble. Many leaders of the Rajput community have alleged that historical facts have been distorted in this romantic tale of Mughal Emperor Akbar and Rajput princess Jodhaa Bai. The leaders have also threatened to stall the release of the movie across Rajasthan.
The leaders would first watch the movie and then allow it to be screened across the state. They have also said that Jodhaa Bai was one of the many wives of Jahangir and not Akbar's, adding that the fact was misrepresented in K Asif's Mughal-E-Azam too. The movie had earlier run into trouble with the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, who issued a letter to Gowarikar asking him if had the necessary permission for using animals in his film. The movie has used over 50 camels, 100 horses and about 80 elephants.
