Shah claimed the depiction of elements such as Harappa War and recovery of levy were nothing but figments of imagination of filmmakers and had nothing to do with history of Moenjodaro.



He comforted in the importance that is being given to the heritage sites of Sindh. He said both Makli necropolis and Moenjodaro had been included in the list of international heritage sites and UNESCO was caring for them in coordination with the government.

Set in the era of the Harappan civilisation, Ashutosh tried to stick to the archaeological reports as much as possible. However, this time, the movie attracted the ire of the audience for its wrong and stereotypical portyal of the age and time.

Some said the epic adventure-drama looked more like Bollywood’s own version of a cool past. Starting from trimmed beard to neat hairdos everything was a far cry from the Indus Valley civilisation.

Gowarikar had earlier made the smash hit Jodhaa Akbar (2008), a fictitious romance between the 16th Century Mughal Emperor Akbar and a Hindu princess, Jodhaa.
