NEW DELHI: Ashutosh Gowariker’s Lagaan was an internationally acclaimed hit. Now, heâ€™s trying to do the same with his next venture Mohenjo Daro, for which heâ€™s trying to gather some top notch talent from overseas.
Ashutoshâ€™s crew now includes Oscar nominated and Emmy winning costume designer April Ferry and award winning VFX supervisor Karen Goulekas.
Goulekas has won two BAFTA Awards for Best Visual Effects, for The Fifth Element and for The Day After Tomorrow. She has also worked on Apollo 13, Godzilla, Spider-man, 10,000 BC and more recently The Green Lantern, Looper and Don Jonwho.
She praised Ashutosh for his dedication saying to Bollywoodhungama.com, â€œAshutosh is an amazing story-teller with a beautiful vision for Mohenjo Daro. And now our challenge, as his creative team, is to do whatever it takes to get that vision up on that big screen for audiences to share and enjoy.â€
Ashutosh says, â€œI am super excited to have on board VFX Supervisor Karen Goulekas, who created those astoundingly calamitous effects in The Day After Tomorrow and 10000 BC. I feel fortunate to be working with her on Mohenjo Daro and I’m sure this is going to prove a tremendous learning curve for me in the limitless world of VFX.”
Produced by Disney India’s studio business and Ashutosh Gowariker Production Pvt. Ltd. the film is an epic love story set during the time of the Indus Valley civilization.
