Ashutosh Gowarikar is known for executing his films meticulously. In Jodha Akbar, the director seems to have gone a step further. Apparently, real gold and diamond jewellery is being used for the film starring Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai.


As for the safekeeping, all jewellery has been kept in a special executive room, and all actors have to go there to wear their ornaments. Around 50 guards have been hired for the security of the jewellery alone.


The period film is being shot in Jaipur currently, and a team of 80 people has been designated for the styling of the the jewellery that the cast will adorn.


A source on the sets confirms, “Yes, there are several people who are specially taking care of the jewellery. Besides, all the actors are also taking personal interest in the jewellery.”


Audiences will get a visual treat in terms of precious stones that will be featured in the film. Our source says, “They have used emeralds, rubies and pearls, all specially designed for the film. They are all very expensive. For instance, a simple Rakhi on actor Sonu Sood’s wrist costs around Rs eight lakh. As for the safekeeping, all jewellery has been kept in a special executive room, and all actors have to go there to wear their ornaments.”

The source further adds, “A special pagdi has been made for Hrithik Roshan as well. Considering that he plays Akbar, the great Mughal, it’s only natural that he will be seen wearing exquisite jewellery pieces. The same goes for Aishwarya’s character of Jodha Bai. It will reflect the opulence of that period.

 

Ram Mirchandani, Vice President UTV Motion Pictures says, “Yes, it is true that we are using real jewellery for all scenes in Jodha Akbar. And all ornaments are being provided by a leading jewellery store, Tanishq.”
