Ashutosh Gowariker’s ‘Mohenjo Daro’ starring Hritikh Roshan and Pooja Hegde got a lot of criticism for an inaccurate depiction of history and failed to even do well at the box office. In fact, the film was termed as a disaster but this clearly has not shaken the belief of the director on his lead actor. Ashutosh is all praises for Hrithik and his professionalism.
Talking about Hrithik, the veteran filmmaker said, “When we started shooting last year in January, he was in state of turmoil. But Hrithik never let that show on the sets. He kept it within himself. He’s a thorough professional in that sense. There were times when we told him to take a break but he was mentally strong and kept going.”
Ashutosh further added that despite having so many injuries, Hrithik went on and portrayed a brave front. “This was a demanding film in terms of action. So despite all the pain, he kept going. That was commendable,” he added.
Before ‘Mohenjo Daro’, Hritikh and Ashutosh had previously collaborated on ‘Jodha Akbar’, which was a massive box office success.
