"'Mohenjo Daro' starring Hrithik and introducing Pooja Hegde to release on 22nd Jan 2016 @agppl_tweets," read a tweet from the official Twitter handle of the film's co-producers UTV Motion Pictures on Monday.

The announcement of the film's release date comes just a day after it was known that Gowariker has roped in Oscar-nominated and Emmy Award-winning international costume designer April Ferry to put her creative forces together for the film.

A love story set during the Indus Valley civilisation, ‘Mohenjo Daro’ is jointly produced by Disney India's Studio business and Ashutosh Gowariker Production Pvt. Ltd. (AGPPL).

It is due to go on the floors in October 2014 and its first schedule will take place in South Africa.
