It’s official. After Jodhaa Akbar, Ashutosh Gowariker and Hrithik Roshan are back, with yet another love story. The film, titled Mohenjo-Daro, is set in the era of the Indus Valley Civilisation.
Revealed Gowariker, who is very charged about the project. “I just love, love stories, especially those that are set in different eras. And if it’s several centuries ago, then the intensity of that romance grows multiple fold. Mohenjo-Daro dates back to 2500 BC (4500 years ago). I am extremely excited with the challenge of telling this love story, set during the Indus Valley Civilisation. And to have Hrithik play the protagonist in this ancient world I am creating, makes it all the more exciting.”
Roshan, who is in the midst of wrapping up Bang Bang, says that the film is about human spirit and what enhances it is that the story is set in ancient India. “The Indus Valley Civilisation is very centric to India — popular not just in our country, but of interest and intrigue for the rest of the world. But more than anything else, I am truly excited to work with Ashutosh once again,” said Roshan.
The film is presently in pre-production and is slated to go on floor in the last quarter of this year.
Hrithik Roshan in talks with Rob Cohen for a Hollywood flick
With his penchant for complex action stunts, and playing a superhero in the Krrish series it comes as no surprise that Hrithik Roshan may collaborate with American producer, director and screenwriter Rob Cohen, who has helmed films like The Fast And The Furious and XXX, for a Hollywood film. Cohen was in Mumbai recently and was spotted interacting with the Roshans and it was confirmed by Hrithik’s spokesperson that talks with Cohen are on.
If things click, it will be the actor’s first tryst with Hollywood.
