Ashutosh Gowariker, the man behind the Oscar nominated Lagaan, will be directing his favourite actor Hrithik Roshan in ‘Mohenjo-Daro’.
Gowariker has been working on the script since 2012 and he is glad that the film is finally set to roll.
“I have been working on the script for the past two years now. I am glad that finally it is happening” Gowariker said.
After Lagaan, Gowariker directed Swades starring Shahrukh Khan, Jodha Akbar starring Hrithik Roshan and Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey featuring Abhishek Bachchan. While Jodha Akbar emerged a hit, Swades and KHJJS were box office failures.
Gowariker says he is excited about working with Hrithik again.
“I will be starting it in three-four months time. I am looking forward to it. It’s Hrithik and me again after a long time. I am very excited and looking forward to it,” he said.
Mohenjo-Dari will go on floors in the month September this year and could release late 2015 or early 2016.
A.R Rahman will be composing the tunes.
