Though many predicted doomsday for JODHAA AKBAR not just before it's release but even a week after it's arrival, the film has successfully managed to complete 50 days at the box office. And that too in good style! Unlike numerous flicks which barely reach the 50 days landmark with a couple of dozen prints in the running ay maximum, JODHAA AKBAR would be celebrating this achievement with more than 150 prints across the country. The film is the biggest success ever for Ashutosh Gowariker who has other notable films like LAGAAN and SWADES to his credit. However, his JODHAA AKBAR has done the sum total of business of these two films and is still counting. 


The film has crossed 60 crores just from Indian market and is still counting. Hrithilk and Ash have yet another big hit to their name while UTV too enjoys continued success with first JODHAA AKBAR and then RACE turning out to be mega successes -Jodhaa Akbar is celebrating its 50 day run today. The film is still running in all circuits. It has hit 50 days on 33 cinemas in Mumbai/Thane, 23 cinemas in Delhi/NCR and over 150 cinemas across the country. Jodhaa Akbar was a film that many in the media and trade wanted to see fall flat on its face but the public has made the film a big hit all over India with business expected to finish at about 63 crore nett (hindi version only).
