The timing of Ashutosh Gowariker’s magnum opus starring Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai could not have been better, i.e. 15th February 2008. It was a love story set in the 16th century between the Mughal Emperor who ruled Hindustan (now India), Jalaluddin Mohammad Akbar, and a fiery young Rajput princess, Jodhaa. With romance as the backdrop, and highlighting the Hindu-Muslim marriage of alliance culminating in love and respect for one another, a day after Valentine’s Day was an apt moment for its release. For couples, this is a beautiful rendition of a perfect love story.
