Actor Hrithik Roshan‘s next film, Super 30, has got a new release date. The film will now be hitting the theatres on July 26. The actor announced the news on Twitter and wrote, “Happy to announce that #Super30 is headed for release on July 26, 2019. बहुत जल्द समय बदलने वाला है! @RelianceEnt @NGEMovies @mrunal0801 @TheAmitSadh @nandishsandhu @super30film” (sic). The film was earlier slated for release on January 25, while facing a Box Office clash with Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and Emraan Hashmi’s Why Cheat India.
There was an indefinite delay on the release of Super 30 after the director of the film, Vikas Bahl, got accused under #MeToo movement by a former employee of his film production house. Hrithik condemned the act and took to Twitter to mention that he had requested the producers of Super 30 to ‘take a harsh stand’ against the proven offenders. He wrote, “It is impossible for me to work with any person if he/she is guilty of such grave misconduct. I am away and have access to only sporadic information. I have requested the producers of Super 30 to take stock of the apparent facts and take a harsh stand it need be. This is not to be hushed or brushed under the carpet. All proven offenders must be punished and all exploited people must be empowered and given strength to speak up.”
Super 30 is a story of real-life Indian mathematician, Anand Kumar from Bihar, who launches a programme called ‘Super 30’ to help 30 IIT aspirants crack the entrance test. Expressing his excitement for the film, Kumar had earlier told Mumbai Mirror, “I trust Vikas Bahl with my life story and I believe that he will make a heartfelt film. I am a rooted guy so I feel some level of an emotional quotient is required to live my life on screen. I have seen that in Hrithik – on and off screen. I have full faith in his capabilities”.
