Filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker who is teaming up again with Hrithik Roshan in his much talked about upcoming film Mohenjo Daro, has finally found his leading lady for the film.
Gowariker has finalised model-turned-actress Pooja Hegde to play the lead. The actress will be seen romancing Hrithik in the eternal love story.
Pooja who was crowned the second runner-up in Miss India Universe 2010, was seen in several television ads including one for Hero Honda and Lays alongside Ranbir Kapoor. She was also seen in a couple of Fair and Lovely ads.
Ashutosh confirmed the news and said that the shooting of the film will begin in October this year. “I am extremely happy to have found Pooja. Apart from the fact that she looked lovely with Hrithik, she is a natural actress who is fresh as well as endearing with a lot of poise. I am looking forward to starting shoot early October.”
After creating magic in Jodhaa Akbar, this is the second time Ashutosh and Hrithik are teaming up for a love story.
