Ashutosh Gowariker took three years to research and piece together a plot of the entire civilization through various cities and weave a love story into it. He met as many as seven archaeologists who are closely involved in excavating sites and studying the Indus Valley Civilization and came up with a 300 page script which he then reduced to 80 pages to get Hrithik Roshan to accept the lead role.
