Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan informs that he was happy about Mohenjo Daro director Ashutosh Gowariker’s decision of choosing him for the film but he agreed to do it only when the script came down from whopping 200 to 80 pages!
At film’s press conference , when Hrithik was quizzed about his first thoughts on being approached for the film, and he said: “First thought was that Ashutosh is my friend, first thought was that he gave me a film like Akbar (‘Jodhaa Akbar’), my first thought was of immense joy that he is considering me for another film.
“After that, I looked at the script, you don’t want to know my second thought. But I still said, ‘no, he is my friend’, so I read the script. I loved the story but I waited till that script from 200 pages went down to 80 pages and then we shook hands and said ‘Let’s do this’.”
Ashutosh is well-known for his lengthy movies, most of which have been more than three hours in running time in the past.
Hrithik further added: “The day it came down from 81 to 80, he has flown to Delhi to meet me, ‘Hrithik, I have done it’. And we signed the film there and then.”Stay tuned for more with www.cinenewz.com also on : Tweet to @Its_CineNewz
