Looks like Hrithik Roshan, who is busy with Ashutosh Gowariker's period drama "Mohenjo Daro", is keen to don producer's hat.

The honey-eyed actor is said to have been taking some time off from his shoot to meet some renowned directors and discuss projects that he would like to produce.

According to a report in Mid-Day, the actor recently met director Nishikant Kamath, who is working with Ajay Devgn in the remake of the Malayalam film "Drishyam".

"Hrithik is looking forward to sign new projects, but not merely in the capacity of an actor. He is open to co-producing a film if he likes the script," a source told the daily.

It's a trend where popular Bollywood actors don't seem to limit themselves to just acting, but go beyond that. While many of them share profits their films make, some are interested to venture into production. 

"A couple of other reputed directors are also on his list at the moment. These days, stars have a big say in how the project must shape up apart from sharing the film's profits. So, it won't be surprising if Hrithik is actually seeking to collaborate on any project," added the source.

If the Bollywood heartthrob turns producer, he will join the likes of Shah Rukh Khan, John Abraham, Aamir Khan and others who have produced some successful films.

However, it is not clear if Hrithik will jointly produce with his father Rakesh Roshan's Filmkraft Productions or invest his money separately. 

Meanwhile, the shooting of Roshan's "Mohenjo Daro" is going on in full swing in Bhuj, Gujarat. The film is a love story that dates back to 26th century BC. The "Bang Bang" star will be seen romancing newcomer Pooja Hedge in the film.
