A good news indeed for Assamese Film industry ! Earlier in October last year, we shared a news about Assamese model turned actor Diganta Hazarika‘s inclusion in eminent film maker Ashutosh Gowariker’s blockbuster telenovela “Everest”. Here’s another good news from Diganta! Diganta now makes into a film titled as Mohenjo Daro, directed by Ashutosh Gowariker and produced by Ashutosh Gowariker Productions and Disney India.. Incidentally, in Mohenjo Daro Diganta will be a part of the team which includes actors like Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hegde.
Scheduled for a worldwide release on August 12, 2016, Mohenjo Daro is set in the ancient city of Mohenjo-daro in the era of the Indus Valley civilisation that dates back to 2600 BCE. On the film’s plot, the director was quoted saying, “While the plot will follow the discovery of Mohenjo Daro and the culture and the vibe of the ancient civilisation, it will largely centre on a love story.” It took Gowariker three years to piece together the entire civilization through various cities and weave a love story into it. Hrithik Roshan was confirmed to play the male lead and was paid 50 crore (US$7.9 million) for the role. Actress Pooja Hedge was signed as the female lead. On the other hand, the music is composed by A. R. Rahman.
We wish Diganta all the very best!
