Superstar Hrithik Roshan’s highly anticipated film Super 30 is facing one trouble after another. Recently, its director Vikas Bahl had returned to shoot some patch-up work after he was accused of sexual harassment by a former employee of the now-dissolved Phantom Films. However, if fresh reports are to be believed, the director has been barred from overseeing the editing process of the film. Reportedly, the makers are now looking for a filmmaker who can handle the film hereon.
“Vikas is not doing Super 30 at all. Producers Sajid Nadiadwala and Reliance Entertainment are looking for someone able, who can supervise the post-production including the editing, VFX and CGI. They are also planning to rope in a few professionals who will take charge of the film hereon,” a source close to the unit divulged the information.
The movie, based on the life of renowned mathematician Anand Kumar, is slated to hit the screen on 25th January. But keeping in mind all the pending work, it looks the movie might get postponed to some other date.
“Chances are that the film’s release might get pushed. However, Nadiadwala is judiciously distributing time between his two productions — Housefull 4 and Super 30 — to ensure the films meet their deadlines. Bahl will also not be a part of the promotions and has been asked not to make any comments related to the film.”
If Super 30 releases on 25th January, it will lock horns with Kangana Ranaut’s historical drama Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi.
