Hrithik Roshan and Ashutosh Gowarikar, nearly had a tiff for a scene on their upcoming film Mohenjo Daro. Recently, a few pictures of Hrithik Roshan were released, fighting with a 20 ft long plastic crocodile.
It's obvious, that Hrithik Roshan cannot fight a real-life 20 ft crocodile, and hence the filmmakers created a remote-controlled plastic crocodile. Hrithik, had to fight the croc, and the rest of the sequences had to be taken care by the visual graphics team to make it look larger than life.
As soon as the pictures of the crocodile came out in the media, people ridiculed the scene by calling it plastic, fake and unreal. Social media, started trolling Hrithik Roshan and the fake crocodile shown in the pictures.
Hrithik Roshan, is irked by the online trolls, and informed director Ashutosh Gowarikar about the brickbats. It was reported, that Hrithik asked Ashutosh to re-shoot the crocodile scene and make it look more real and large, and Ashutosh rejected the idea.
A source close to the movie was quoted as saying,
"Ashutosh refused. Shooting a period film is very difficult and he wants to go by his own conviction. Ashu is convinced that they had filmed good footage and was not willing to change things because of comments on social media. This created some stress between the actor and the director. When Hrithik is not happy with his work, he is difficult to handle. It keeps niggling him and he gets restless. For now they have decided to stay away from the subject, lest it hamper the progress of the film."
Mohenjo Daro, is a movie based on pre-historic life, and Hrithik Roshan would be seen fighting a 20 ft long crocodile. The movie is slated to be released in August, 2016.
