The Telugu version of Jodha Akbar is really doing well while compared with the Tamil version. According to Ashutosh Gowariker the director of the film, The film is doing really well in its Telugu version, not that well in the Tamil version. Since the Hindi version was released in both Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu before the regional editions, the film is getting overwhelming support from Andhra viewers.
"Distributors tell me the Hollywood period film 10,000 BC was released in Tamil Nadu is one of the main reasons for the sliding in the attendance for Jodha Akbar, But I don't believe that. Jodha will get its share in Tamil too." Ashutosh said in confident.
He further said, "The success of Jodha Akbar has given me the freedom to make my next film. I'm yet to feel a sense of triumph that I should be feeling. But it's been a long battle. And we've managed to get the film extricated in MP and UP. But Rajasthan remains a sore point. I feel the film belongs to Rajasthan. How can it not be released there?'
Let us hope the director will come up with a non controversial flick next time to get its berth in Rajasthan too!
