Hrithik Roshan's "Mohenjo Daro" is an ambitious project made on a lavish budget. Which is why it isn't surprising to know that it has begun minting money months before the release.
According to a Catch News report, the music and satellite rights have been sold to the tune of Rs 60 crore. While the music rights have been acquired by T-Series, satellite rights went to Star Network.
A glamsham.com report states it's a first of its kind. Usually, a film's rights are up for grabs after it has created some buzz with a first-look poster or a teaser or something along the lines.
Strangely, all anyone knows about the period film is that it stars Hrithik and newbie Pooja Hegde, who will romance each other in the backdrop of the Indus Valley Civilization. However, there's a strong buzz suggesting that the trailer may be out by June 16 and the motion poster is already out.
The news of the rights being sold off isn't official but sort of confirms what SpotboyE once reported. The entertainment portal claimed that the network has signed a six-film deal with Hrithik and that the superstar's upcoming thriller "Kaabil" has been sold (satellite rights) for Rs 45 crore.
"Mohenjo Daro" was a tough film for the actor and it's good to see that his hardwork is already paying off. "I am travelling back into time and it's been a great journey and a great experience working with this film Mohenjo Daro. I believe its going to be one of my best films and I hope the audience will also agree with me when they see the film," India today quoted him as saying.
The Ashutosh Gowariker directorial will arrive in theatres on Aug.12, same day as Akshay Kumar's "Rustom."
