The eminent filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker, who is all set to team up with Hrithik Roshan again in his new project ‘Mohenjo Daro‘, based on the world’s oldest surviving city dating back to the pre-Hindu Indus Valley civilization, says the superstar took three years to say yes for the period drama.
The Film ‘Mohenjo Daro’, is a love story set during the Indus Valley civilisation, which dates back to 2600 BCE, is jointly produced by Disney and Gowariker, who is also directing the film.
“It’s an individual choice, interest and ability to stay interested and keep pursuing. For me ‘Lagaan’ would have never happened without Aamir, similarly without Hrithik I could have never made ‘Jodha Akbar’.So, for me it was natural that I waited three years for Hrithik to find time,” Gowariker said in a group interview.
Gowariker is launching a new face, Pooja Hegde, as the female lead in the periodic film “Mohenjo Daro” . “The character needed a new fresh face and that’s why Pooja came in.” he said.
‘Mohenjo Daro’ is scheduled to go on floor in November this year. Currently the director is scouting the locations for the film.
This film denotes the name of Mohenjo Daro – the world’s oldest surviving city dating back to the pre-Hindu Indus Valley civilization.
Mohenjo-daro was built in the 26th century BCE. It was one of the largest cities of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization, also known as the Harappan Civilization, which developed around 3000 BCE from the prehistoric Indus culture.
