“Hrithik takes his injuries very seriously and puts in all that was needed to cure them. After he hurt himself on the sets, he told the team that it would take him some time before he’s able to get back on his feet. After several weeks of physiotherapy sessions, he is slowly recovering. He recently shot for a few other assignments that didn’t require him to do any strenuous activity. It was an easy job, so he decided to go for it.”
Hrithik’s absence doesn’t mean Mohenjo Daro is on hold. A source from the team revealed, “Ashutosh has only a few days of shoot left with the actor and then the film is a wrap. With Hrithik on a break, Ashu is busy in the edit room putting the film together. Once the actor comes back from Spain he will finish Mohenjo Daro and then move on to his next project that is being produced by his father Rakesh Roshan.”
“It has been great! Ashutosh and me go back over 30 years as friends and there’s a wavelength match in the way we understand cinema, so things came together better than I’d expected. The film’s expensive because Ashutosh’s sparing no cost in getting the best. #HrithikRoshan plays the lead, renowned cinematographerKarl Walter Lindenlaub (of Independence Day, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, The Haunting and Stargate) is recreating the Indus Valley of 2600 BC,, A.R.

We haven’t worked together. He messaged me in January last year asking to call him urgently. He’d seen Yaksh, which is also complete. When he told me of the part I felt it challenged me as an actor and agreed despite the short notice. I landed in Bhuj the next day.
History tells us only the barest minimum about the Indus Valley Civilisation. Except for ruins, broken pieces of pottery and few coins with the bull emblazoned, there is little to help archaeologically. Unlike the Mughal era where the architecture, painting, lifestyles and food is known, there’s little to help (here). The bronze nude statuette with bangles all the way up to her elbows and the male bearded head in soapstone are all we have.
I can’t tell you anything more than that people are going to be surprised with my character Durjan. He has all the human frailties. Character apart, the look itself was a challenge since I had to look middle-aged. It took a whole evening of work by Vikram Gaikwad and team. I’ll be surprised if audiences recognise me when promos are out.” ~ Nitish Bharadwaj on Mohenjodaro.
