After Hrithik Roshan and Ashutosh Gowariker's latest movie "Mohenjo Daro" bombed at the box office, reports suggest that the actor and director blame each other for the poor performance of the film. "Mohenjo Daro," which is said to be one of the most expensive Bollywood movies till date, was expected to break several box office records. However, it received negative reviews, both from the critics and the viewers, and ended up being a flop.

It has now been reported that Hrithik is extremely upset with the failure of his much-hyped movie and holds the director, Ashutosh Gowariker, responsible for it. Hrithik expressed his unhappiness at the final outcome of "Mohenjo Daro" by sending some agitated messages to the director, according to a report in DNA.

The report also said that the director was not ready to take the blame on himself and replied to the actor in similar fashion. The box office failure of "Mohenjo Daro," which also features Pooja Hegde and Kabir Bedi in key roles, has reportedly created a rift between Hrithik and Ashutosh.

The period drama was released on Aug. 12, clashing with Akshay Kumar's "Rustom." While trade experts had earlier expected "Mohenjo Daro" to have an upper hand at the box office, it is "Rustom" that has come up as the clear winner.

Hrithik's upcoming movie "Kaabil" is also likely to clash with Shah Rukh Khan's "Raees." While the makers of "Kaabil" have already announced that the film will be released on Jan. 26 next year, SRK's movie is expected to hit the screens on the same date.
