Sindh Minister Demands An Apology From Mohenjo Daro’s Director Ashutosh Gowariker

The makers of Bollywood film ‘Mohenjo Daro’ just cannot seem to catch a break.

Ever since its release, the film has been receiving a lot of flak for something or the other and has been bombarded with controversies. This time it’s no different and trouble has come from across the border.

A Pakistani minister seems to have taken offence with the movie. Big right? Read on…

Apparently, Sindh Minister for Culture and Antiquities, Sardar Ali Shah was miffed with the film because the facts portrayed in the film had allegedly been distorted. He claimed that the film is a mockery of a culture that is highly respected and is a 5,000 year old civilization.

He said that the film is merely a “figment of the director’s imagination” and that it has absolutely no connection with the civilization.

The minister demanded an apology from the makers of the film, adding that he was really upset with the makers especially considering that Mohenjo Daro is a UNESCO heritage site.

Whew! Let’s wait and see what the makers of the film have to say about this, till then watch this space for more updates.
