Veteran actor Kabir Bedi says he is happy to be a part of an “epic” like Ashutosh Gowariker’s “Mohenjo Daro”, which stars Hrithik Roshan in the lead role.

The epic adventure-romance film is set in the ancient city of Mohenjo-daro, Sindh Pakistan in the era of the Indus Valley civilisation that dates back to 2600 BC.

Though Bedi did not reveal about his character, he said the period drama has a beautiful story.

“I am playing a very important role in the movie. I can’t talk much about it. The movie is shaping up well. It is an epic movie and Ashutosh has weaved a beautiful story around one of the oldest civilisations. It will be a great movie,” Bedi told PTI.

This is the second time the 69-year-old actor is working with Hrithik after 2010 film “Kites”. Bedi said it has been a wonderful experience sharing screen space with the “Bang Bang!” star.

“I have seen him since his childhood as I am friends with his his father. It feels wonderful to see him evolve into such a fabulous actor.”

Mohenjo Daro is one of the most awaited film in Bollywood and will hit the screens on 12 August 2016.
