New Delhi: The trailer of upcoming period drama film Mohenjo Daro has been viewed more than 30 million times since it was released on Monday evening and the film's lead actor Hrithik Roshan is very happy with the response.

"We all have worked very hard on this film and so we were super excited to present our trailer to the audiences. My fans mean the world to me and getting a thumbs-up from them is all I ever aim for," Hrithik, who is currently in Madrid for IIFA, said in a statement.

Soon after the trailer released, Hrithik's colleagues praised Hrithik's performance as Sarman in the Ashutosh Gowariker-directed film:
 
 
 

The Bang Bang! star said in the statement that he is "truly humbled with the response and all the lovely messages" that have come his way.

Not everyone was as impressed by the trailer of Mohenjo Daro, however, and several tweets pointed out that the film, set in the ancient Indus Valley, appears to lack authenticity. Hrithik seems to have carefully ignored the chatter ridiculing the costumes and noting other inaccuracies.

Users slammed the look and feel of the movie and, in particular, of its heroine, played by Pooja Hegde.
 
 
 
 

Pooja will make her Bollywood debut with the film, which is slated for August 12 release. Mohenjo Daro is co-produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur and Sunita Gowariker.
