A History Scholar Ripped The Posters Of 'Mohenjo Daro' To Shreds


Ashutosh Gowariker may pride himself as a director with an astute knowledge of history, but just the first posters of his new period love story, Mohenjo Daro, were enough for a Twitter user to point out some grave errors.

While Gowariker has said in interviews that we worked with a team of archaeologists to be as historically accurate as possible, it seems that the Jodha Akbar director should have run his posters by them, before dropping them online.

Ruchika Sharma, an aspiring archeologist and an M.Phil student at JNU with a specialisation in Medieval Indian history, had this to say about the latest Mohenjo Daro poster that introduced the film's leading lady, Pooja Hegde.

Well, if the poster itself is so full of such wild missteps, how much of history is going to go down the drains in the film?
