While the contention encompassing Hrithik Roshan’s open question with Kangna Ranaut appears to have achieved a deadlock, everyone’s eyes are presently stuck to the whiz’s next enormous discharge, the period epic Mohenjo Daro which opens on August 12.
The unavoidable issue confronting the huge discharge is, will it be influenced by the messy quarreling?
“Not in any way,” states an exchange master who wouldn’t like to be named. “The quibbling doesn’t trouble the movies. Hrithik has an enormous fan-taking after and a demonstrated reputation in the cinema world. Diligent work is his USP. Not media picture. He has effectively given a major recorded hit with the same executive Ashutosh Gowariker.”
So certain is Gowariker that we hear the film will have one of the greatest ever discharge for a Hrithik Roshan starrer, in spite of the fact that it is being pitched against the Akshay Kumar starrer Rustom. Says an all around educated source, “Ashutosh is exceptionally certain of Mohenjo Daro. He is arranging a discharge greater than Hrithik’s Krissh 3 and Bang…
According to this source in the know, the big USP of Mohenjo Daro is its genre. “There are no major costume dramas this year except Mohenjo Daro. Last year there were Rajamouli’s Bahubali and Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani. This year there is only Hrithik’s costume drama. He has proved in the genre with Gowariker’s Jodhaa Akbar.”
The only weak point in the box office consideration is the leading lady. For the first time in his career Hrithik is paired opposite a newcomer Pooja Hegde. Even as a child actor Hrithik had Sridevi as his co-star in Bhagwan Dada.
Advance reports on Ms Hegde suggest she is “dynamite” on screen.
“Pooja is fully confident. She has shot some sizzling love scenes with Hrithik. She doesn’t let you feel she is raw or new. She will be a big star after Mohenjo Daro,” says a source closely associated with the film.
As for the competition from the Akshay starrer Rustom, the genres are completely different. Though both the films are set in the past, Rustom goes back to 50 years, while Mohenjo Daro goes back to 2600 BC.
Old better be gold this time. Ashutosh Gowariker has not had a successful film for years. To ensure he doesn’t lose his audience he has edited Mohenjo Daro down to a running time of just over 2 hours. Gowariker’s Swades, Jodhaa Akbar, What’s Your Raashee? and Khelenge Hum Jee Jaan Se all rammed into more than three hours……..
