Having been associated with Hrithik Roshan for the iconic film, Jodhaa Akbar, director Ashutosh Gowariker was keen to cast the actor in his next period film, which was a love story set in Mohenjo-daro and Harappa.
However, Hrithik signed up for Siddharth Anand's official remake of Knight And Day with Katrina Kaif, in the meantime. The shooting for this film is supposed to begin early next year. Hence, Gowariker is disappointed that Hrithik is not available for his period film right away. Sources reveal that Ashutosh is now considering other actors to step in for the lead role.
In all likelihood, Hrithik will not be free for a long time as he will be extensively shooting in five countries for Anand's action film.
