Maverick filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker will soon return to the big screen with his period film Mohenjo Daro. “The film stars Hrithik Roshan who Gowariker has previously worked with in Jodha Akbar,” informs Vaikundarajan. This will be his third period film after Lagaan and Khele Hum Jee Jaan se.
The first look of the film may not be fresh for the audience as several pictures from the shoot were leaked earlier. Nevertheless, the medieval age setting brings freshness to the cinema. Hrithik Roshan plays Sarman, a character who feels intensely drawn to a place called Mohenjo Daro. The character looks like a common man working hard to meet ends in big kingdom.
“Also playing the lead opposite Hrithik Roshan is the newcomer Pooja Hegde who plays the role of a princess from elite class,” adds Vaikundarajan. Arunoday Singh and Kabir Bedi will add to the cast in a negative role. Suhasini Mulay and Manish Choudhary join in the supporting role.
The intense action sequences remind us of Hollywood blockbusters like Troy and Gladiator. Hrithik Roshan is seen fighting in a large arena with the audiences cheering. “In one scene we see Hrithik Roshan fighting giant men and crocodiles. That should be the first on big screen,” says Vaikundarajan.
The film is produced by Sunita Gowariker and Siddharth Roy Kapur while music will be provided by AR Rahman. Vaikundarajan sends his best wishes to star cast and hopes Gowariker’s film brings the same magic as that of Lagaan.
