Ashutosh Gowariker signs Karl Walter, Glenn Boswell for Mohenjo-Daro

About a couple of months ago, before finalising Hrithik Roshan, Ashutosh Gowariker had signed renowned cinematographer Karl Walter Lindenlaub to recreate the Indus Valley Civilization of 2600 BC.

Karl has previously worked on award-winning films like Independence Day, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, The Haunting, Stargate and many more.

A source close to the director says “Ashutosh sir was keen on working with the German cinematographer (Karl Walter Lindenlaub) on his last film ‘Buddha’ which was later shelved. So when he planned to make Mohenjo-Daro, a film that he has been writing for more than 2 years, he wanted a strong technical team to recreate the 4600 year old civilization. The visuals in the film will be nothing like what you’ve seen in an Indian film ever before.”

Ashutosh has also signed Hollywood stunt co-ordinator Glenn Boswell, who choreographed the stunt sequences in Hollywood films like The Matrix series, Ghost Rider, The Hobbit Series, just to name a few.

Mohenjo-Daro is likely to be one of the most expensive films of our times and Ashutosh has an incredible team with him – Hrithik Roshan a dependable superstar as the lead, multiple Oscar-winning music director A.R. Rahman, German cinematographer Karl Walter Lindenlaub, acclaimed stunt coordinator Glenn Boswell and Gowariker himself who has directed award-winning films like Lagaan, Swades and Jodhaa Akbar.

Mohenjo-Daro is expected go on floors in the month of September this year and should release in the first half of 2016. The leading lady of the film is yet to be officially confirmed.

  • Just like roshans signed Barabara mori for Kites. No matter boxoffice verdict will be like guzaarish not Kites. Mohanjodaro will find difficult to cross Kites box office.

  • Wow this is a brilliant news Mohenjodaro is getting bigger and better day by day . After signing Hrithik and Ar Rahman this is a huge announcement . Karl Walter Lindenlaub and Glenn Boswell are two genius in their own respective fields . This will be a timeless movie just like Jodhaa Akbar . I don’t think any movie of Hrithik will release in 2015 because he will give full time to Mohenjodaro and the result will be fruitful both critically and commercially . Hats of to you HR for always trying something new and always taking risks and doing out of the box films . # Respect .
