The 2008 movie Jodhaa Akbar was special for actor Sonu Sood in a variety of ways. He portrayed Rajkumar Sujamal, the cousin brother of Jodhaa (played by actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan). The epic movie was helmed by Ashutosh Gowariker.
He revealed, “I thoroughly enjoyed shooting for this one. Historical films always give me a high. My mom, being a professor of History, had always encouraged me to do some historical films when I am offered. That is why I said yes to this one”.
The 49-year-old remembers how 'huge help' his mother was during the shoot. He continues, “She helped me with my character, and guided me throughout the shoot, and also with the script. But she couldn’t see the film. She passed away four months before the release. Then I went for the premiere, I could feel she is sitting beside me.”
He became emotional, saying, “It reminds me of her memories. She had visited me on the sets of Jodhaa Akbar, that was the last set she visited. That’s why it remains special. She promised me that this film will change a lot of things for me, and it did”.
