His last three films – Lagaan, Swades and Jodhaa Akbar - had a running time of more than 3 hours. In fact, in the case of Jodhaa Akbar, it's said that Ashutosh had brought down the running time from almost 4 hours to 3.20 hours.
Now, looks like his latest film What's Your Raashee? Starring Priyanka Chopra and Hurman Baweja might follow his earlier films as far as the running time is concerned. In fact, not many are aware that there are as many as 13 songs in What's Your Raashee?. "Yes, 13 songs," the talented film-maker confirms. Won't that make it a lengthy experience? "But when have I ever got deterred by the length of the film?" pat comes the reply.
