Mumbai, Mar 19 (UNI) The Hrithik Roshan-Aishwarya Rai blockbuster 'Jodhaa Akbar' has broken box office records to gross worldwide Rs 120 crore in 31 days.
The UTV Motion Pictures (UMP) and Ashutosh Gowariker co-produced film had earned Rs 90 crore in the domestic market, with Rs 30 crore netted from overseas box office collections, according to a release from UMP.
UMP Director Siddharth Roy Kapur said ''Jodhaa Akbar is an epic not merely by virtue of the timeless story it tells, but also because of the tremendous tribulations its creation entailed. But the response Jodhaa Akbar has received not only in India but worldwide by both critics and viewers is worth all the hard work.'' The films that have a history are those that entail an epic creation, but Jodhaa Akbar which released across 25 countries in 1500 screens worldwide and dubbed in Tamil, Telegu, Dutch and Arabic, seems to be the one making a history on its own.
'Jodhaa Akbar' is a monumental testament to Oscar nominated film director Ashutosh Gowariker's vision and commitment. To compliment Ashutosh Gowariker's efforts are power packed performances by Hrithik and Aishwarya, the release said.
