Hrithik Roshan-Pooja Hegde starrer "Mohenjo Daro" is a period drama based on Indus Valley Civilization, but the film has a striking similarity with a Hollywood science fiction drama, which was released in 2009.

"Mohenjo Daro," directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, is a bit similar to the Hollywood film "Mohenjo Daro." The Hrithik-starrer will show the destruction of civilization on a grand scale and the Hollywood film "2012" is about annihilation of planet Earth based on the prediction of the Mayan calendar.

But not only the destruction of civilization, the film also has one similar scene. In the action promo of "Mohenjo Daro," there is a destruction scene which is caused by flooding. The sequence is similar to the flooding scene which has been picturized in the movie "2012."

Now this piece of information will certainly raise the curiosity among the moviegoers to watch the film.

"Mohenjo Daro" is an epic drama starring Hrithik as Sarman and Pooja as Chaani. The film, which is slated to release on Aug. 12, also features Kabir Bedi, Arunoday Singh, Nitish Bharadwaj, Suhasini Mulay and Sharad Kelkar in the pivotal role. The film, starring Hrithik and Pooja, is one of the most awaited movies of 2016 and the trailer, which released last month, has raised the curiosity.

The film is set to clash with Akshay Kumar's "Rustom" at the box office, but the director Ashutosh believes that both the film will do well at the box office.

"'Lagaan' and 'Gaddar' had released on the same date too. So, I feel 'Mohenjo Daro' should also work and 'Rustom' should also work. Both the films should be superhits," Ashutosh said during a press conference.

"The thought did come to our mind that the films will clash and box office will get affected, but then even 'Sholay' and 'Jai Santoshi Maa' released on same date and 'Jai Santoshi Maa' was a bigger hit because its cost of recovery was higher," Ashutosh added.
