Julia Roberts visits symbol of love “Taj Mahal”

Oscar winner Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman) visited the world famous symbol of love “Taj Mahal” in Agra (India) on  Saturday, about 200 kilometers from Pataudi where she is currently staying for the shooting of “Eat, Pray, Love”, according to reports.
 
Universally admired masterpiece mausoleum of white marble, Taj Mahal was completed in 1648 after 17 years utilizing about 20,000 laborers and 1,000 elephants. Built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his favorite wife Mumtaz Mahal, who died during the birth of her 14th child, it gets about four million visitors annually and appears in several listings of seven wonders of the modern world. Soon after the completion of Taj Mahal, Shah Jahan was overthrown by his own son Aurangzeb and put under arrest.
 
Roberts also reportedly spent some time on the weekend with a Bollywood family:  Filmfare Award winners Saif Ali Khan (Hum Tum) and Sharmila Tagore (Aradhana), and Filmfare nominated Soha Ali Khan (Rang De Basanti). Tagore is also the chairperson of Central Board of Film Certification of India, a government regulatory body “responsible for certifying the films produced in India as well as outside the country suitable for public exhibition”.
 
Seeing Roberts’ interest in spirituality during her few weeks stay in India, acclaimed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed has urged her to explore Hinduism further when she returns to USA after completing the shooting in India and Indonesia for this movie.
 
Aimed at a release in 2011 and directed by Ryan Murphy (Nip/Tuck); “Eat, Pray, Love” also stars Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men), Richard Jenkins (The Visitor), Viola Davis (Doubt), Billy Crudup (Almost Famous), James Franco (Pineapple Express), Luca Argentero (Lezioni di cioccolato), etc.
