Ashutosh Gowariker announced his next venture with Hrithik Roshan a few months ago titled Mohenjo Daro. Based on the famous Harappan civilization, this period drama will have Hrithik Roshan playing the historic character once again like their previous film Jodhaa Akbar. However, the shooting that was to commence from next month has suffered a set-back.
Commenting on the same, producer Sunita Gowariker added, "Yes, its true that we have postponed the shoot of Mohenjo Daro. Ashutosh and I both felt that we wanted Hrithik to recuperate fully before beginning the film especially since we plan to start with action sequences. So now we'll start shooting in the first week of January instead of end November. Hrithik being 100% physically fit is important to us and so shifting the shoot by a few weeks made a lot of sense."
Mohenjo Daro is an epic love story, set during the Indus Valley Civilization jointly produced by Disney India's Studio business and Ashutosh Gowariker Production Pvt. Ltd. (AGPPL) The film will mark the debut of model Pooja Hegde who will be seen playing the female lead in this film.
