The first poster of Hrithik Roshan's "Mohenjo Daro" was revealed on June 7 and it has been receiving overwhelming response from celebrities as well as fans.

Fans and Bollywood stars have been taken to Twitter to praise Hrithik's rugged look in the movie. Directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, "Mohenjo Daro" is one of the most-awaited flicks of this year and the recently released poster has just doubled the excitement among fans.

B-Town celebs like Shahid Kapoor, Karan Johar, Riteish Deshmukh, Anil Kapoor and Yami Gautam took to Twitter and applauded the poster, expressing their excitement for the movie.

The "Mohenjo Daro" poster started trending on Twitter soon after its release as fans were extremely impressed by Hrithik's look in the film. Hrithik is seen sporting a robust avatar in a battlefield in the poster.

Hrithik was last seen in the movie "Bang Bang" (2014), which was a blockbuster. The handsome actor did not have any release last year, and that made fans extremely eager to watch Hrithik on the big screen in an action avatar. Slated to be released on Aug. 12, the film also features Pooja Hegde.

Produced jointly by Ashutosh and Siddharth Roy Kapur, it is touted to be one of the costliest movies in the history of Bollywood. There has been a huge hype around Hrithik's upcoming movie and the poster has just multiplied it manifold. Fans are now eagerly waiting for the trailer of "Mohenjo Daro," which is expected to be out next week.

Considering the fact that Hrithik has been away from the big screen for a long time, and that the poster of "Mohenjo Daro" looks very impressive, Ashutosh's upcoming directorial venture is likely to be a blockbuster at the box office. Check out some of the tweets by fans and celebrities about the poster.
