The dubbing for the film, which releases Feb 15, is over and mixing is underway.
'After editing and mixing it finally comes to 3 hours, 20 minutes of playing time, which is still less than my 'Lagaan',' Gowariker, who has just come back from a prolonged period of confinement due to a bad back, told IANS.
The Hrithik Roshan-Aishwarya Rai starrer, produced by UTV, is set in the 16th Century and revolves around the romance between Mughal emperor Jalaluddin Akbar and Rajput princess Jodha Bai.
Talking about his illness, the director said: 'Though I've not fully recovered, I am now active.'
'It's quite a Valentine's Day release, don't you think? A legendary Hindu-Muslim love story,' chuckled Gowariker.
