"Bang Bang" star Hrithik Roshan's upcoming film "Mohenjo Daro" has hit a roadblock.
Ashutosh Gowariker, the director of the film, has postponed the shoot, owing to Hrithik's injury.
Hrithik was gearing up for shooting "Mohenjo Daro" but the actor met with an accident which delayed the schedule of the the period drama.
It looks like after "Bang Bang", now "Mohenjo Daro" is also jinxed. The shoot of "Bang Bang" was affected due to his health issues and injuries.
The actor had to undergo a minor surgery and treatment in the US, after he injured himself on the sets of "Bang Bang".
And now, Hrithik has suffered an untimely shoulder injury, due to which he has been advised to be on complete bed rest. He injured his shoulder while working out in the gym, following which doctors advised him a six-week rest, according to Mumbai Mirror.
The period drama was initially supposed to go on floors in November but has now been postponed. According to reports, apart from the six-week bed rest, the director has given him an additional three weeks.
"Mohenjo Daro is a physically demanding film with some challenging action sequences which will be shot in the first schedule itself. Both Ashutosh and Hrithik being the perfectionists that they are did not want to shoot these scenes with a body double. Ashutosh has decided to push the shoot to next year so that Hrithik is fighting fit, lean and strong, when he reports on the sets," the report quoted a source.
Ashutosh's wife Sunita Gowariker confirmed the news, and said they have delayed the shoot of the period drama.
"Yes, it is true that we have postponed the shoot of Mohenjo Daro. Both Ashutosh and I wanted Hrithik to recuperate fully before beginning the film since we plan to start with action sequences. Now we will start shooting in the first week of January. It is important to us that Hrithik is 100 per cent fit and shifting the shooting dates by a few weeks makes a lot of sense," she stressed.
