The makers of "Mohenjo Daro" released the first poster of the flick on June 7 and Hrithik Roshan's look in it was quite promising. Twitterati, including Bollywood celebs, are praising the handsome hunk's rugged look in the poster.

The first poster of "Mohenjo Daro" featured Hrithik Roshan in a tough look as he appeared to be in a battlefield. The trailer of the Ashutosh Gowariker directorial is expected to be released next week and the film is scheduled to hit the screens on Aug. 12.

However, its poster garnered immense appreciation from all quarters, but Hrithik's look seemed no different from his look in "Agneepath." As "Mohenjo Daro" is one of the much awaited movies of 2016, the first poster didn't fulfill the expectations. The makers had also released the motion poster before the film poster.

After Hrithik's look, fans are now excited to see the first look of Pooja Hegde, who will play the handsome hunk's love interest in the period drama. The film is set in the ancient city of Mohenjo-daro in the era of the Indus Valley civilisation (2600 BC). The story of "Mohenjo Daro" will revolve around a man who falls in love with his enemy's daughter, who is a dancer.

It took three years for Ashutosh to make this film and Hrithik had also not signed any film after "Bang Bang" for the period drama. The film was shot in Bhuj and Mumbai, and this will be Hrithik-Ashutosh's second period drama together, after "Jodha Akhbar."

Meanwhile, the first poster of "Mohenjo Daro" has impressed several Bollywood celebs and they have praised the "Kaabil" actor on social media.
