Sadly, we have to report that the release of the highly highly highly anticipated film, Jodhaa Akbar, is delayed yet again. UTV Motion Pictures has released a statement saying that the film will now be in theaters on February 15th, 2008.
The film starring Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was slated to open on January 25th but due to a back injury of director Ashutosh Gowariker the film has had to be delayed. With his injury Gowariker has to be on bed rest for three weeks and so he cannot travel to Chennai to complete the background score. Ashtoush said, “I am sad that this had to happen in the thick of post production; it is unfortunate, but it has to be dealt with.”
The soundtrack with music by A.R. Rahman and lyrics written by Javed Akhtar is scheduled to release on January 9th. The soundtrack is all ready popular with fans even before the release because of the glimpses and snippets of songs heard in the song promos!
