Did Ashutosh Gowariker really hurt the Rajput Pride.

Well, the verdict is still not out on it. There were reports that the Hritik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai starrer Jodha Akbar has not portrayed history correctly. The movie has now been released in 26 countries.

And now after watching Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai sizzle in the Ashutosh Gowariker movie what do the people feel ? Some say it is an epic and some say it is entertaining. The movie has received a warm welcome on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. It is doing good business abroad. Back home in India, the state of Rajasthan has banned it. There is a demand to ban the movie in MP. Gujrat has seen some violence.

Ashutosh Gowariker says that he has done his homework correctly. He used the best possible research to make the movie. One cannot go back in history. As long as it does not hurt sentiments it should be fine. Finally movies are for entertainment and the certification board should decide before the release if a movie has crossed the lines or not. All the post release controversies just adds to more news articles like this.
