Pakistani minister demands an apology from Ashutosh Gowariker for distorting facts in Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Mohenjo Daro

Karachi,Sept7: Sindh Minister for Culture, Tourism and Antiquities Sardar Ali Shah has strongly reacted to Ashutosh Gowariker`s recently released flick `Mohenjo Daro` and asked the director to tender an apology for distorting facts.

Shah said that this film has made a mockery of highly developed culture of the 5000-year-old civilization, reports the Dawn.

He said that he would soon communicate Sindh`s reaction and objections to “the director concerned.”

According to Shah, the movie depicted nothing but figments of imagination of filmmakers and had nothing to do with history of Mohenjo-Daro.

He added that the world had widely acknowledged the importance of the heritage sites of Sindh, which was evident from the fact that Makli necropolis and Mohenjo-Daro had been included in the list of international heritage sites and UNESCO was caring for them in coordination with the government.
