Ashutosh Gowariker's period movie "Mohenjo Daro" starring Hrithik Roshan seems to be overshooting its budget.
It is known that Hrithik has charged a massive amount for the film – a whopping amount of ₹50 crore - as the actor has chosen not to share the profit from the film and instead take home the hefty amount.
There were also reports that with such a massive amount, Hrithik could be the highest paid actor in the country and "Mohenjo Daro" the most expensive film.
Now the buzz is that Gowariker and his co-producer will have to pay extra money to Hrithik if the shooting exceed, reported The Times of India.
Hrithik has apparently allotted 150 days to the makers to complete the film and if they fail to complete the shooting of his portions within the limited time, they need to pay him extra money on a daily basis. The buzz is that the "Bang Bang" star has implemented the special clause in his contract.
According to a source close to the actor: "Hrithik believes that five months of working days are enough to complete the film"
Apparently, the honey eyed actor has other projects in hand and wants to start filming his father Rakesh Roshan's next project by next year and hence has given "Mohenjo Daro" makers the deadline, said another filmmaker close to the actor.
However, this is not the first time the actors have implemented such a cause.
Earlier, Kareena Kapoor Khan had also made a similar clause when Sanjay Leela Bhansali wanted her to cast for "Ram Leela". But as Bhansali didn't agree to such a clause, Kapoor chose to opt out of the film, which was later replaced by Deepika Padukone.
Kapoor had earlier said: "I had allotted 100 days for the shooting in August 2012 as per contract, but Bhansali wanted more days to shoot."
Meanwhile, "Mohenjo Daro" is a period drama that dates back to the 26th century BC. It is a love story set during the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation. Newcomer Pooja Hegde will be seen opposite the Bollywood hunk. The film is scheduled to release worldwide on 22 January 2016.
