Ashutosh Gowariker’s magnum opus Jodha Akbar is nearing completion and the post-production work is on in full swing. At this juncture, this Aishwarya-Hrithik-starrer has witnessed something only few films of the past have ever seen.That Rahman is scoring the music for this epic love story is no news but that Ashutosh has gone ahead and done the unthinkable - chopped one of Rahman’s compositions for the movie is something that has sent shockwaves in the industry. Even good friend Rahman isn’t pleased with this decision.The Qawwali number in question was shot lavishly in huge sets, erected just for this purpose. The director, however, felt that it was a tad bit too long to be a part of the movie and has decided to let the scissors do the work. Ash has stepped in for Rahman and has agreed to use this Qawwali for her next movie.
