Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 pushed to July 26, 2019
The film directed by Vikas Bahl was earlier scheduled to release on January 25
After multiple delays, Hrithik Roshan’s much-awaited film, Super 30, has been pushed to a July 26, 2019 release date. The social drama was earlier scheduled to release on January 25 and clash with Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and Thackeray. Directed by Vikas Bahl, Super 30 is inspired by the life of Bihar-born mathematician and philanthropist Anand Kumar, who founded the Super 30 education programme in 2002 to help underprivileged students crack IIT-JEE examinations.
In October last year, Bahl was accused of sexual harassment by a former employee of the now dissolved production house Phantom Films, which he co-owned with Madhu Mantena, Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane. The allegations were subsequently denied by Bahl and the victim chose not to pursue the case in the Mumbai High Court.
Super 30 marks the last production under the Phantom banner. The film is being presented by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and Reliance Entertainment. Hrithik’s own production house, HRX Films, is also credited as a co-producer. The makers decided to not call the film a biopic after accusations of results forgery surfaced against Anand Kumar.
Super 30 stars newcomer Mrunal Thakur as its female lead. The former TV actor made her feature film debut in the 2018 film, Love Sonia. Virendra Saxena, Pankaj Tripathi, Nandish Singh and Amit Sadh are also part of the Super 30 cast.
