ZNMD Hrithik

The archrival opposite Hrithik Roshan in Ashutosh Gowariker’s ‘Mohenjo Daro’ has been confirmed.

Apparently, it has taken a long time for the filmmaker to zero in on a villain in the film. He was quite keen on signing Bedi previously but was worried that his Hollywood commitments may come in the way. A source told Mumbai Mirror, “Ashutosh was really keen on Kabir but worried that his international commitments would come in the way. However, Kabir is confirmed and has allotted dates for the film.”

Talking to Mumbai Mirror, Gowariker said that it was Bedi’s negative roles in Bond movie ‘Octopussy’ and the play ‘Tughlaq’ that made him want to sign the actor. “He has been on my wish list for long. I still remember his towering performance in Tughlaq and his quiet simmering presence in Octopussy, as well as his works in many Italian and Hollywood movies.”
