Revealed: The real reason behind Hrithik Roshan charging Rs 50 crore for Ashutosh Gowariker’s MohenjoDaro!

Ashutosh Gowariker, Mohenjo Daro, Hrithik Roshan

The actor-director duo have previously worked together in the superhit Jodhaa Akbar

Hrithik Roshan made headlines when today’s morning newspapers read that he would be charging Rs 50 crore for Ashutosh Gowariker’s MohenjoDaro. Right from the inception of the project there was a lot of confusion as to who would be cast as the lead in the film. From Aamir Khan to Shah Rukh Khan to Ranbir Kapoor to Ranveer Singh, all were considered for the role, but it finally went to HR. Now that he has got the role, has he suddenly started acting pricey? We wonder…

If we recall, the actor director duo have shared quite a great rapport since the time they worked together in Jodhaa Akbar. So why is HR was charging such an astronomical figure? Our khabroos inform us that, unlike his other films, Hrithik will not be taking a profit share in Mohenjo Daro. On the contrary he is happy to take a one time fee of Rs 50 crore and leave aside all the profit shares to the filmmaker and the film producers.

    Are we talking about Shuddhi? Its Ashutosh’s Mohenjo-Daro, he’s waited for years to get his first choice, Hrithik as the main lead as nobody other than him can do justice with main character.

      true… the reporter of this article doesnt have his/her facts right. AG’s first and only choice has been Hrithik and he waited 3 years for his dates!!!

    Hrithik Roshan probably needs the money to pay alimony to Susanne Roshan.

        I mean for the impending divorce settlement. Hrithik Roshan may have come to terms with losing Susanne, but he is going to accept any demands she makes so that he can keep seeing Hrehan & Hridhaan.
