Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan arrived in Bhuj on Monday, to the same place where Ashutosh Gowariker shot major portions of his Oscar nominated film ‘Lagaan’.
Ashutosh and Hrithik’s second film together (after Jodha Akbar) titled ‘Mohenjo Daro’ went on floors on Tuesday. The cast and crew of the film began shooting a few dramatic sequences, before they move on to shoot action scenes.
The film is set in the ancient city of Mohenjo Daro in the era of the Indus Valley civilisation that dates back to 2600 B.C.
“It’s been in pre-production for a while now. So when we took the first shot, everyone on the sets got emotional, including Ashu” said Gowarikar’s wife Sunita, who is also the co-producer of the film.
Talking about the action scenes in ‘Mohenjo Daro’, Sunita said “We couldn’t start with action as Hrithik needs to familiarise himself with the character. We want him to spend a week with the character, doing dramatic sequences before we go all out with the action.”
‘Mohenjo Daro’ also stars Pooja Hegde. The film releases in theatres in 2016.
