Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daro falls in big legal trouble before release
Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Mohenjo Daro film starring Hrithik Roshan may get Supreme Court stay order pior to its release
Hrithik Roshan and Ashutosh Gowarikar’s magnum opus Mohenjo Daro is all set to get released this upcoming weekend but it seems that the movie is facing its share of controversies. In recent times, one has noticed that most big budget movies go through several controversies and disputes around the time of release which also unintentionally helps to promote the film.
A few months back, a massive controversy surrounded Udta Punjab before its release but the film managed to do recent business at the box office despite of going through several legal problems. The latest film to get into trouble prior to its release is Mohenjo daro. News coming around is that a theater writer/director named Aakash Aditya Lama is ready to go to Supreme Court in order to get a stay order on the release of the film. Lama claims that he had made a play by the name of Mohenjo daro many years back and Gowarikar has lifted the story of his play and turned it into a film without his consent.
Lama has shown evidence of sending an email to Gowarikar back in 2010 about the same issue but Gowarikar did not revert back. In 2015, Lama sent a legal notice to Gowarikar and this is when the Producer/Director took notice of the matter and got his lawyer to deal with it. Gowarikar’s lawyer has managed to keep the film out of legal trouble and even the high court rejected Lama’s plea to get a stay order on the film’s release. However, Lama is not ready to accept defeat and will now go to Supreme Court to get justice.
Mohenjo daro is all set for release on 12th of August and the film is keenly awaited by die hard Hrithik Roshan fans. The epic film will showcase actress Pooja Hegde romancing Hrithik Roshan.
