Hrithik Roshan’s upcoming film ‘Super 30’ may be delayed due to the sexual harassment claims against director Vikas Bahl.
According to Pinkvilla, the film will release in March, 2019 instead of 25th January, 2019, as originally planned. If the makers confirm the delay, ‘Super 30’ will avoid clashing with ‘Manikarnika’, ‘Cheat India’ and ‘Thackeray’.
However, a source has revealed that Roshan is getting involved in the editing process to ensure the film releases as scheduled in January, “’Super 30’ is a very special movie for Hrithik and also his first biopic. He changed his looks completely to look like mathematician Anand Kumar. It’s also his first release after ‘Kaabil’ (2017). He wants to make sure that everything goes off well. He was also involved with the first posters of ‘Super 30’.”, adding that, “No cell phones are allowed inside the editing studio and it’s all very hush-hush. He has experience with every aspect of post-production as he has helped at his father Rakesh Roshan’s production house and assisted him before he became an actor. Hrithik wants to make sure that nothing hampers the release date of ‘Super 30’.”
The source also shared that there is no reason for delay, despite the controversy, “The shooting of ‘Super 30’ is complete so why should the film get postponed? Everything is on schedule as planned. A few weeks ago the cast and crew of the movie had celebrated the completion of the film with a wrap party in Mumbai. Many Bollywood celebs, including Hrithik Roshan, Mrunal Thakur, Sajid Nadiadwala, Wardha Nadiadwala, Vikas Bahl, Manav Gohil, Shweta Kawatra, Ajay-Atul, Aditya Srivastava, Virendra Saxena and Amit Sadh had attended the wrap-up party at an eatery in Mumbai. Only the post-production of ‘Super 30’ is left, which includes editing, and there’s plenty of time for that to be completed and the film to be released on time.”
Roshan has publicly condemned Bahl’s actions and has urged the makers to take a stand against the director. The makers have remained silent so far.
