Last movie? Jodhaa Akbar!!! Finally something I watched without the children…without G...but ...with my in-laws.

G decided to be the perfect husband and spent an evening with the children, while I brushed up on my Mughal history. Of course, my need to see hrithik was greater than his!! The movie was memorable for two reasons...hrithik was 'abs'olutely droolworthy and my mom-in-law had superb timing…just when the abs scene flashed, she decided to update my knowledge in history...wah!!!
