To strengthen the empire's position in the region, Rajput princess Jodhaa Bai (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan) marries Mughal Emperor Jalaluddin Mohammad Akbar (Hrithik Roshan).

5. Wake Up Sid (2009)

Sid Mehra (Ranbir Kapoor), although vibrant, is very lazy.

Sid is bored with the monotony of the workplace and is drawn to Aisha's independence and free spirit. As a result, he moves out of his house to live with her.
