Ashutosh Gowarikar 's Jodhaa Akbar , starring Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan in the title roles is attracting attention from unwanted quarters.

The leaders of Rajput community in Jaipur are threatening to stall the release of 'Jodhaa Akbar' in Rajasthan alleging distortion of facts.




President of Rajput Karni Sena, Lokendra Kalvi said on Tuesday that the Sena apprehended distortion of Rajasthan's historical facts in 'Jodhaa Akbar', which is based on Jodhpur raj gharana.

The Karni Sena would watch the movie when released, and if required it would not allow it's screening in the state, Kalvi said.

Earlier, the Rajput Mahasabha had also alleged misinterpretation of historical facts.

They maintained that Jodha was Jehangir's wife and not Akbar's as shown in K Asif's 'Mughal-E-Azam' earlier and now in 'Jodhaa Akbar'.

The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, a body registered with the Animal Welfare Board of India, had also issued a letter to Gowarikar asking him if had the required permission for using animals in his film.

Over 80 elephants, 100 horses and 55 camels were used in the movie, which has been made at a whopping budget of Rs.400 million.

Touted as one of the biggest releases of this year, 'Jodhaa Akbar' spins a yarn around a glorious chapter of the Mughal era.

Expectations are high since the epic romance is the third big film to come from the Gowarikar stable after the much-acclaimed Lagaan and Swades .

With Hrithik and Ash coming together again after Dhoom 2 , 'Jodhaa Akbar' has managed to grab headlines much before its release that is scheduled on February 15, 2008.
