Last year, Vikramaditya Motwane transported Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha to the early ’50s for his critically-acclaimed film, Lootera. And he isn’t the only film-maker to take a trip to the past. Several films set in the bygone eras or using older references in modern-day cinema are set to hit the theatres in the coming months.
Why time travel?
To start with, Hrithik Roshan is set to star in Ashutosh Gowariker’s period epic, Mohenjo-Daro, while Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone will be seen playing lovers in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical, Bajirao Mastani.
