Hrithik loves going back in time and playing characters and doing films that have a historic background. It was JODHA AKBAR before this and now ‘MOHENJO DARO’ with the same director Ashutosh Gowariker. And seems like he trusts his director way too much with all the facts. When asked if he has to read up about the first ever civilization, Hrithik said, “I didn’t read anything about the subject. Because we have with us our director who is like a textbook in himself and whenever I used to have any confusion about the subject, I used to refer to him.”

Hrithik spent two long years on the film as he says, ‘detailing was required to present MOHENJO DARO’. He adds, “Ashutosh has a penchant for detail. His need to be perfect in factual representation took more time than we had planned. And my duty as an actor was to support his vision and support his process so it took a long time.”

When quizzed about the facts used in the film, MOHENJO DARO Hrithik gave a befitting reply, “We are doing films to entertain people, not to pass on literature. It’s not a documentary. If the film is good and people are satisfied and they are going through an emotional journey through the characters, then it will be a big contribution.”
