    It was a great experience working on Jodhaa Akbar. In fact, it would not be an overstatement if I said that it was an experience of a lifetime.
    I don’t think I’ll ever be able to work on a film so grand and so big. and it was not just about the numbers. u have to see it to believe it. the sheer scale of the film is something not seen in Indian cinema in a long time. In fact, it might just turn out to be a larger film than Mughal-e-Azam. But can’t really say that right now. Although one thing is sure. This film is a visual treat. The way its been shot and treated is extraordinary. I wish I could talk more about it right now though.
    One more thing, I think Ashutosh is one of the most talented film-makers in India. His visual sense is remarkable. And the best thing is that if you are working with him, you get so much respect for a job well done that it almost spoils you. Given the magnitude of the film, screw ups often happen on set. And the way he handled those situations is really remarkable. If there would have been any other director, he/she might have just flared up and made life hell for their assistants. But not Ashutosh. He would support you and that really encourages you to give in your 200 per cent. And that’s what makes the film a very personal experience.

    Thanks for sharing your experience, Puneet!! For those who dont know, Puneet worked on Jodhaa Akbar as one of the assistants to Ashutosh Gowarikar. Puneet, we would be very interested in your thoughts on the movie once it is released. Some interesting moments and some analysis in each department!
