Hrithik Roshan chooses his projects carefully, and when he does, the actor expects a certain amount of perfection from the makers.
There have been reports how he would be seen fighting a 20-feet-long crocodile in "Mohenjo Daro". Since it was impractical to get a live animal on the sets, the team zeroed in on a battery-operated plastic gator.
However, when pictures of the scene went viral on social media, fans reacted to it fiercely and poked fun as well. This response didn't go down well with Hrithik, who reportedly got into a mild disagreement with director Ashutosh Gowariker.
The actor suggested the scene be re-shot but his request was turned down which apparently worsened the situation. The filmmaker was convinced with the shot and didn't want to budge merely based on an internet reaction.
"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," Bollywood Life quoted a source as saying.
In other news, Hrithik could be losing out on important film projects because of the period drama. According to a Koimoi report, Akshay Kumar has replaced the suave star in Nikhil Advani's 'Bazaar".
Scheduled for a August 2016 release, Gowariker's magnum opus also features newcomer Pooja Hegde.
