The progress of "Mohenjo Daro" has been bostructed often, and slowing the pace further is an alleged fight between the film's director and cinematographer.
Muraleedharan (senior DoP) and Ashutosh Gowariker got into a fight over a set the former wished to be erected in a certain way, but the latter didn't agree. The argument got rough and the shoot had to be called off, reported Spotboye.
Now, this isn't the first of fights on the sets of this period-drama. A few months ago, there were conjectures of the star of the film, Hrithik Roshan, not being too happy with the way a scene turned out and wanting the filmmaker to re-shoot it. The two reportedly had a discussion on it and finally Gowariker decided to not entertain the actor's wishes.
Apparently, photos of Roshan fighting a remote-controlled gator was heavily trolled and made fun of on social media. This turned him off, which is why he suggested that the sequence be filmed again.
"This created some stress between the actor and the director. When Hrithik is not happy with his work, he is difficult to handle. It keeps niggling him and he gets restless. For now, they have decided to stay away from the subject, lest it hamper the progress of the film," an insider told DNA.
Scheduled for a 12 August release, Gowariker's magnum opus will also feature newcomer Pooja Hegde.
