Lucknow, March 1 (IANS) The Uttar Pradesh government late Saturday decided to ban Bollywood blockbuster 'Jodhaa Akbar' fearing 'breach of peace'.

'We have decided to ban 'Jodhaa Akbar' following intelligence inputs that indicated a possibility of clashes among communities,' Principal Home Secretary J.N. Chamber told IANS.

The Hrithik Roshan-Aishwarya Rai starrer, released Feb 15, has run into trouble in neighbouring Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh following protests by a section of the Rajput community alleging that it has distorted history.

Uttar Pradesh has not seen any protests against the film except one last month in Lucknow.


Hrithik Roshan Vaada raha... i promise
