Mohenjo Daro is an upcoming Indian epic adventure-romance film directed by Ashutosh Gowariker.The film is produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur and Sunita A. Gowariker.It features Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hegde in the lead roles.
The film is set in 2016 BC in the ancient city of Mohenjo-daro in the era of the Indus Valley civilisation. The film is about a man who falls in love with his enemy’s daughter who is a dancer. Centred on romance through the cultures and ancient civilisations of Mohenjo-daro, Gowariker took over three years to develop the film with the help of archaeologists who documented the discovery of Indus Valley civilisation. The film was shot in Bhuj and Mumbai with short schedules in Jabalpur and Thane.
The soundtrack album and film score are composed by A. R. Rahman with song lyrics penned by Javed Akhtar. The film is scheduled for a worldwide release on 12 August 2016.
The movie is based on the medieval times and hence oodles of money will be spent in constructing the sets for the film. Hrithik Roshan is rumored to have charged 50 crore for this film. The actor has asked for this since he has to undergo a lot of physical training and shall also have fighting sequences with tigers. This is probably the reason why Hrithik slashed the producers with this hefty amount. The surprising news is that the producers have agreed to him and would be paying him what he has demanded for.
