Nikitin Dheer calls Jodhaa Akbar a ‘bad experience’

Nikitin, who portrayed the villain Sharifuddin Hussain in Ashutosh Gowariker’s magnum opus confessed that he had a bad experience during shooting. He told, “As an artist, I didn’t have fun working on the film. It was a very bad experience for me, to the point that I told my father that I’d entered the wrong line, and that I’d rethink my life.” 

He further added, “I worked on my physique for the film, I trained for months in Urdu. I shot for more than 100 days. For example, I specially flew back from Istanbul to dub for the film. I must’ve made 90 phone calls to figure out what the plan is, but nobody from the production answered my calls. The third day, I was supposed to return to Istanbul, and that’s when I’m told that they’ve got somebody else to dub my part. It made me very angry. And there are so many incidents like this.”

Jodhaa Akbar was produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Ashutosh Gowariker.
