Mohenjo Daro emerges victorious

Court comes to the rescue

The Bombay High Court yesterday ruled in favour of director Ashutosh Gowariker in a suit filed against him by Akashaditya Lama, wherein Lama had alleged that Gowariker stole his script for his upcoming film Mohenjo Daro. Hon'ble Justice G.S. Patel dismissed an injunction plea against the film's release and imposed exemplary and punitive costs of Rs. 1,50,000 against Lama.

The order goes on to record Ashutosh's painstaking research, contacting archaeologists and hosting 6 renowned experts on Mohenjo Daro in Mumbai for a week for in-depth discussions, and building his story and script based on their theories and opinions.

Lama had done many media interactions filled with allegations against Gowariker. 

However, the filmmaker is having the last laugh. Gowariker's spokesperson confirmed the verdict and said, “Ashutosh had faith in the legal system and rather than talking about this, he has been engrossed in promoting the film and I’m sure that that is what he will continue to do. Everyone is fully geared up for 12th August and also the Locarno International Film Festival.”

Mohenjo Daro stars Hrithik Roshan and newbie Pooja Hegde in the lead roles. Set in 2016 BC at the height of the Indus Valley civilization, the story revolves around a simple farmer (Hrithik)  who travels to the great city and falls in love with a girl (Pooja) from a rich family.
