Disney India and Ashutosh Gowariker Productions announce ‘MOHENJO DARO’
– Film to go on floors in October 2014 –
Disney India’s Studio business and Ashutosh Gowariker Productions Pvt. Ltd (AGPPL) are to collaborate once again on ‘Mohenjo Daro’, after their acclaimed outing together on Jodhaa Akbar. The film will be directed by Ashutosh Gowariker with Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hegde (introducing) in the lead roles.
Mohenjo Daro, an epic adventure and love story set at the time of the Indus Valley Civilization, will be grand in the sheer magnitude of its scale and design. Like Ashutosh’s earlier films Jodhaa Akbar and Lagaan, two of the most memorable Indian movies of the last two decades, Mohenjo Daro promises to be a big screen must see experience. After Jodhaa Akbar, Mohenjo Daro will be the second film bringing together Hrithik Roshan, Ashutosh Gowariker, AGPPL and the studio.
Commenting on the collaboration producer Sunita Gowariker said, “There has always been a natural creative synergy between UTV and AGPPL in our previous movies. This time through our collaboration with Disney we’ll have an even greater focus on entertaining families and to top that off, I’m looking forward to working again with the Disney team.
“After Jodhaa Akbar, we are thrilled to work with Ashutosh and Hrithik again, and we are excited about bringing another wonderful Indian story to the big screen”, said Amrita Pandey, VP and Head of Marketing & Distribution, Disney Studios, India.
The Film will go on floors in October 2014 with its first shoot schedule in South Africa.
