Superstar Hrithik Roshan took to his Instagram account to tell his fans about 13 years of Jodhaa Akbar. Yes, that’s right, this epic period drama starring Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan came out 13 years ago today. On this special occasion, Hrithik who essayed the role of emperor Akbar in the film left an endearing note regarding the it. The film’s anniversary also coincides with director Ashutosh Gowarikar’s birthday and he wished him too!
His post contained a video with some major highlights from the movie and he wrote, “Memories. #JodhaaAkbar
Man, this movie was difficult. I was shit scared when Ashutosh Gowarikar offered it to me. Couldn’t understand how he could see someone like me commanding 10,000 soldiers. But then that’s what a director does. He envisions what you can’t. And that’s the reason I did the film. More than the script or story, it was for experiencing what this impossibility would do to me, how it would change me, make me stronger perhaps. And what I learnt was that to do strong things, you don’t need to be strong in the beginning! In fact, the decision of wanting to be strong comes before. And it MEANS having to choose that which is beyond your ability at the time of choosing. Trusting that the experience itself will do the rest. The challenge then itself creates the stronger you.
