Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut will have to fight no box-office battle on 26th July as the Krrish (2006) star has decided to postpone the release date of his much-anticipated forthcoming film, Super 30. Earlier set to lock horns with Ranaut’s Mental Hai Kya, Super 30 will now release on 12th August.

Bankrolled by Reliance Entertainment and Nadiadwala Grandson, Super 30 is based on the life of renowned mathematician Anand Kumar from Bihar. Kumar is known across the country for his Super 30 programme, which coaches economically backward students for the entrance examination for the Indian Institutes of Technology.

Hrithik Roshan, who was last seen in the Sanjay Gupta-directed Kaabil (2017), plays Anand Kumar in the movie. The actor has worked really hard to get into the skin of his character. If we look at various posters of the film, Hrithik Roshan seems to have nailed his character in the upcoming movie.

Though Super 30 has avoided its box-office battle with Kangana Ranaut’s Mental Hai Kya, it will now clash with Ekta Kapoor’s another film, Jabariya Jodi, which is also set to enter theatres on 12th August. The movie stars Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra in lead roles.

Mental Hai Kya, which reunites Kangana Ranaut with her Queen (2014) co-star Rajkummar Rao, has been directed by National Award-winning filmmaker, Prakash Kovelamudi. The movie also features Amyra Dastur.
