“I think Pooja Hegde has been, by far, my best co-star. I could not have asked for a nicer person or a more talented actor to work with in this film,” Hrithik said at an event where he interacted with his fans.
Pooja, who makes her debut with the film, said, “I feel grateful, thankful that I have got an opportunity to be a part of this film with such a good actor. I think that Mohenjo Daro will be one of his best acting performances because I saw the film and he has done a great job. I’m honoured that I could be a part of that journey and also to work with Ashutosh Gowariker, who has been one of my dream directors.”
Hrithik said, “I’m feeling very good, very curious to see how all will like the film. Pooja and I are very proud of the film, we worked very hard on it, as you all know, giving lot of time and learned how to deal with things with a lot of patience.
There is nothing that we can say that is going to matter now. So one more day to go, so it’s time to say, ‘go watch the film’.” Mohenjo Daro has clashed with Akshay Kumar’s Rustom at the box-office.
Hrithik also finds it laudable that a team made up of refugees has been allowed to compete at the Rio Olympics. He has extended his support to swimmer Yusra Mardini. On Wednesday night, he tweeted: “It’s incredibly cool to have included displaced sportsmen in Olympics... This time as refugee Olympic team. They don’t have a nation. Let’s all cheer for them.”
“I cheer for Yusra Mardini, a real life hero who saved lives through her swimming and is part of refugee Olympic athletes team,” added the Mohenjo Daro actor.
