Ashutosh Gowariker's period movie, "Mohenjo Daro" starring Hrithik Roshan is finally ready to roll the cameras, after the shooting got delayed for several reasons.

The entire cast and crew of the film including Roshan reached Bhuj, Gujarat on Monday, 26 January, where the first schedule of the much anticipated film will be shot.

Earlier, there were reports that the pre-production work has been going on in full swing. Also the set has been constructed keeping in mind the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation, which the period drama is based on.

"Mohenjo Daro" is a love story that dates back to 26th century BC. The "Bang Bang" star will be seen romancing new-comer Pooja Hedge in the film.

Gowariker, who has delivered super hit films like "Lagaan" and "Swades", has teamed up with Roshan for the second time after the blockbuster "Jodhaa Akbar".

"Mohenjo Daro" is said to be the director's mega project with a massive budget. The honey-eyed actor has also reportedly charged a whopping ₹50 crore for the film, as he chose not to share the profit from the film and instead take home the massive amount.

Apparently, the makers have also agreed to pay the actor extra money on daily basis, incase they fail to complete the shooting within the time allotted.

"Mohenjo Daro" is scheduled to release worldwide on 12 August 2016.

The film's official twitter handle has tweeted:
