Currently engrossed in a tough battle against Saawariya, Shahrukh Khan’s Om Shanti Om readies for release this upcoming Friday. But apart from OSO-news, it has recently been learned that SRK was in fact offered the title role in Ashutosh Gowariker’s Jodhaa Akbar before Hrithik.
Confirming this development, he claims, “Ashutosh discussed the film with me during the making of Swades but it was way too grand. It’s going to be a grand film–Aishwarya and Hrithik are perfect and they also have a lot of patience. Asoka was very different in that it was experimental. I lack the patience, I like to work quickly.”
