Hrithik’s Mohenjo-Daro to go on floors in September

Ashutosh GowarikerAshutosh 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.



  • When Gowariker worked with Aamir they created history and the movie entered in top 5 final list of Oscars and when he worked with Hrithik then their combination gave beautiful superhit movie but when he worked with our king then they gave box office failure Swades and we were confused whether it was our kings fault that our kings stardom is less than this 2 superstars coz critically Swades was good movie but still box office failure

  • greek god ashutosh sir rahman sir= masterpiece .
    As for actress,
    i would love to see
    1.aishwarya rai
    2.shraddha kapoor
    3.anushka sharma
    4.deepika padukone
    but i think ashutosh sir willn’t offer to DP as he has already worked wid her in khele hum jee jaan se. So he may offer kareena also.

  • Hrithik rejected shuddhi and signed mohenjodaro! ! !but why? ? Both films will need same no.s of date for shootings!then why he rejected earlier one?now I feel kareena is the cause for which hr opted out from shuddhi.

  • Hope this movie will be as good as Jodha Akbar.
    Hrithik top 3 movies in my opinion are:
    1)Kaho na pyaar hai(His first movie is his best movie)
    2)Jodha Akbar
    3)Dhoom 2

  • now haters will say this will b another guzaarish!!….something is burning!!
    all the very best ASHUTOSH Sir & HR!!come as early as possible…..waiting!!!!!!!!!!

  • Hrithiks expressionless acting in JA will also appear here. Pray it is not another Khelenge hum ji jaanse which was a major flop. Aashutosh should create magic again this time.



    Most probably Disney India is going to produce and distribute it. Magnum Opus coming…………………!!!!!

    Hats off to Hrithik to always go for new type of films. now haters like lauki,choli bros.,romance disaster will shout here too.

  • Yes !! Another Masterclass Magnum Opus is Coming. It Would Be No Less Than a Epic. A Glorious Alliance Of People Perfect In Their Department HRITHIK-ASHU-REHMAN. Cast Aishwarya and It would become Just Beyond Limitations.

    Eagerly Waiting the movie by Oscar Nominated Director ASHU & Golden Minabar Award Winning Actor HRITHIK ROSHAN !

  • Another BLOCKBUSTER coming which will be a sensible film! Eager to see Gowariker and Hrithik together again. Class actor with Class director. No wonder why Hrithik’s Gowariker’s fav. Jodhaa Akbar is Gowariker’s biggest success till date.

  • Wow wow wow wow wow duggu going to rock in this ambitious project… Love u Duggu, It will be awesome Classic movie

  • What a brilliant news keep it up indicine . I am very happy that Hrithik is doing Mohenjodaro because Ashutosh Gowariker is a brilliant director i must say a genius one of my favourites . After Hrithik opting out of Shuddhi i am extremely excited to watch Bang Bang and now Mohenjodaro . I love the title . The team of Jodhaa Akbar is back . I expect a award winning performance . @ indicine i have heard that Priyanka and Kareena are being considered for the female lead . Glad to know that even after working with Aamir and Srk Hrithik is his favourite actor . HR rules .
