The shooting of Ashutosh Gowariker's period movie "Mohenjo Daro" starring Hrithik Roshan is currently going on in Bhuj, Gujarat.

However, it has now been learnt that the actor and the entire unit is facing a tough time shooting in the scorching heat and dust storms. 

"We are working very hard in the middle of dust storms. It's a tough shoot. What to say... people are fainting on the set. But we are at it," Hrithik Roshan said at an event, reported Bollywood Life.

Hrithik, further added that although they are having a tough time shooting, the film is shaping very well.

"The film is going very well. The shooting is progressing fantastically," he added.

"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 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.
