What is a tiled blue swimming pool doing in a Mohenjo Daro song?

The film Mohenjo Daro by Asutosh Gowarikar tells a story that happened before the birth of Jesus Christ, the entrance of Mughals and British in India, and before Buddhism became a religion. Considering the historical setting, how does the film explain the presence of a perfectly shaped, tiled blue swimming pool, surrounded by diyas, in the song Tu Hai that was released on Wednesday.

Although the film has not released yet, but still a few doubts linger while watching the choreography of Tu Hai, which has Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hegde romancing. The melody of AR Rahman partly loses its charm when one tries to find logic in the music video.

Why would the people from the time of the ancient Indus Valley civilisation borrow dance moves from Bollywood to express their love for each other?
