After sexual harassment allegations against Vikas Bahl, the filmmaker was told to step down as the director of Super 30. It was said that the shooting of the film is complete and Anurag Kashyap will look into the editing and post-production of the movie. However, Nandish Singh Sandhu, who plays a pivotal role in the film, has revealed that Anurag Kashyap shot a few portions of Super 30 including the climax.
During an interaction with us, when we asked him which directors he would like to work with, the actor said, “I think Nitesh Tiwari ji (Dangal fame), he is one director that I would really want to work with. I met him also once and he was there for the screening of Super 30 as well. But I do have more directors I really look forward to working with. There’s Nitesh ji, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Raju Hirani. There are new directors like Nitin Kakkar. I have seen his films; he has got a great sense of filmmaking. Anurag Kashyap, he has directed some portions of this film (Super 30) as well.” When probed him if Anurag directed the climax of the film, Nandish said, “Yes.”

While talking about if he was worried that his debut film is embroiled in controversies, Nandish told us, “No, I don’t think so. But even if the thought came it just disappeared in seconds. Nobody was affected; everybody was just working towards the film. It never came on the sets that this has been printed or this has been spoken about him. It didn’t bother anybody because we were just working towards the film, everybody was doing their jobs, we were working on our characters, other departments were doing their job and we were all sure that a good film and a great film is being made because any sort of distraction would spoil the product. So, everybody was very clear as to what we need to do.”
Well, just a few days before the release of Super 30, Vikas Bahl was given a clean chit in the allegations against him and was also credited in the film as the director. Starring Hrithik Roshan in the lead role, Super 30 has turned out to be a hit at the box office.
