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.



  • An epic blockbuster on his way for HR..

    I think, it ll release on chrismas next year nd will bang de box office records..

    HR will sweep all de best actor awards..

    Hats off to de Greek God..

    Eagerly waiting..

  • Hmmm. She is not bad. But expectwd a much better looking top heroine for Hrithik;like Aish, DP or Shraddha.

  • Don’t know about Pooja’s acting ability but if Aahutosh has shown faith in her than there must be something good in her. Apart from that Hrithik’s great and the film will be one of the most awaiting film of the next year.

  • IT WILL BE A MASTERPIECE. .pooja is pretty and talented as well. She is a trained dancer also..
    Cann’t wait to watch the fresh and hot pair. .

  • Definately mohenjo daro will collect more than ashutush’s last movie khele hum jee jaan se. After all papa’s boy is in the movie and papa roshan knows how to manipulate the collections.

  • An Average or Above Average Movie in Making

    If Hrithik & Ashwariya’s Hit couple were able to deliver a Above Average Period Drama. So Hrithik + New Comer can deliver Average or may be same Above Average nothing more then that.

    Good Luck Ashutosh + Hrithik Combo

  • …it may even become ashutosh’s biggest hit ever jst remember even gracy singh was a newcommer.

  • I am glad that Ashu sir has signed Pooja Hegde because it does not matter whether She is a newcomer or a established actress . The important thing is that she suits the character as per the script, delivers a good performance and shares a wonderful chemistry with Hrithik Roshan . I am excited to watch Mohenjodaro .

  • @tigeress the real queen
    Mohenjodaro will take indian cinema to another level but you third class bhai fans won’t understand that…
    For u Bajrangi Bhaijaan will be a masterpeace…

  • Look at morons like @TIgress-the real shera’s babe,@shitty sahir and @Nipun fake. Hey fools, have u watched the posters? ? Watched the trailers? Heard the songs? ? Saw the movie? ? How can one say dat it will be a failure before watching it? ?
    These insecure morons sud be thrown from the earth.
    Hey tigress, it’s n’t your bhojpuri bhai to deliver disasters like marigold,yuvraaj and many many whom i cann’t even count.
    @sahir: remember ashoka? ? Atleast ja was a hit(or semihit to some source). But what was the verdict of swadesh.
    And what can i say to fake@Nipun who is misusing my id as he knows that i am his baap and single-handly attack all hrithikhaters aka morons.

  • Alas! How ultra cool is this film’s title!!! This title certaily doesn’t sound like a Bhojpuri film title.
    Our old man’s thullu with NO wisdom wil be bowled over the title. He is expected to go gaga over it.
    I have watched Mugamoodi with Jiiva. Her look is okay. And Jiiva plays a mask-wearing non-super hero in the film unlike our non-flying super hero with a mask.
    Frankly, Ashutosh has lost his touch. It will be another Khele Hum Jeejaan Se.

  • Must be a good choice. With hhrithik in the lead should be a classic. The finest actor apart from aamir khan in recent times. It will ccollect more than, jthj and all of srk ‘ shit in the last five years. Lol

  • haters are more concerned about Hrithik and his movies than the fans, that shows how much worried they are about the rise of Greek God! Don’t worry, he will shine the brightest with this world class film, i bet even Hollywood will recognise this film, hollywood crew is working on it and it will be an all time epic blockbuster!

  • deepika,anushka,shraddha etc v kavi newcomers thi. Pooja Hegde will reach new heights and will become one of the top, its the grandest debut one can have, opposite Greek God and under the direction of one of the legendary director Ashutosh Gowariker and in the most ambitious film of indian cinema.

    Ashutosh is Ridley Scott of Bollywood!

  • Hrithik made a Debut with Amesha both were appeared 1st time.

    After that Hrithik worked with established Heroines. Just in Kites Barbara Mori made a Bollywood Debut but Kites failed miserably.

    Let hope for the good for Mohenjo Darro

  • @nipun u can check the verdict of Swades in my Post regarding Gawariker’s Track Record.

    I have said what was truth. U accept of deny reality cant be change. And by the way i m not comparing with any actor, or even no favouring any actor. I m talking about real facts.

    Reality is Gawarikar’s Track record showed his range, his capacity & his volume. Thats it.
