Revisiting Mohenjo Daro

IMG_1501Director Ashutosh Gowariker, actors Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hedge, musician AR Rahman along with the entire team of Mohenjo Daro recently unveiled their period film to the media. The team had recreated the set of the film on the dais especially for the event and the entire cast and crew walked the ramp to indriduce themselves to the mediapersons. The evening also saw a performance by AR Rahman, who sang the song Tu hai which is also sung by him in the film. Here’s what the key team said about their upcoming film:

Hrithik Roshan On Mohenjo Daro

Mohenjo Daro has been a very challenging and rewarding experience. This film challenged the body and rewarded the soul. This journey has reaffirmed my character. This film kept me away from my family and friends for a long time. When I was offered Mohenjo Daro, the first thing that came to my mind was that I have to do this film because Ashutosh (Gowariker) is my friend and he gave me a film like Jodha Akbaar. Secondly the script of Mohenjo Daro was very interesting, it was almost 200 pages long and when I came down to 80 pages I told Ashustosh, ‘Let’s do it’. When I signed the film I knew that I will even give my right hand to the film.

Ashutosh Gowariker On Filming

I am really glad about the ups and downs I faced during the making, be it waiting for Hrithik to finish reading the 200 page script to waiting to know if he is doing it or not, but he finally did it. What that city was called at that time, nobody knows so I used the title Mohenjo Daro because it was universally accepted as Mohenjo Daro. The city was called something else then and now it’s called Mohenjo Daro so I made this film because I like to tell untold stories.

It was great working with Hrithik and Ashutosh sir because I have worked with two greats and hopefully their greatness rubbed off a little bit on me too so I can reach a higher level. Hrithik has been such a vivacious person and has been so encouraging. We shot in the woods for so long and he was always with me as a friend.  I had read about Mohenjo Daro in books but had never ever imagined that I will do this film.

Hrithik On Pooja

The first time I met Pooja was during a photoshoot; that was the first time we interacted professionally. We were asked to look into each other’s eyes so it was a romantic moment. I was taken aback because I have worked with many co-stars but her courage and purity was something that struck me and that time I knew for a fact that Pooja was a special and rare talent and will go a long way.

There is something so romantic about his persona. It is not obvious but it’s the fact. All his films have wonderful romance and the way he shoots it, he takes it to another level.  He shoots the most incredibly romantic scenes. He won’t give instructions or tell you much but he will create such an ambience and atmosphere that there is nothing left for the actors to imagine. And I must say every single romantic scene in this film is something you would want to take home.
