Things seem to be developing really rapidly for the beleaguered project Super 30, chronicling the life and work of Bihari mathematician Anand Kumar. The project was derailed when its director Vikas Bahlwas accused of sexual misconduct by an unnamed woman. But now, with the lady backtracking from her legal battle with Bahl, the coast has been cleared for the director to re-enter the project.
Says a source close to the development, “Not that Vikas is being taken back into the production company. But now with the lady clearly withdrawing her case, the project somehow needs to be finished and released.”
On Sunday morning, producer Madhu Mantena flew to Lisbon where Hrithik is currently stationed. The star and producer had a long meeting during which it was apparently decided that Hrithik Roshan will complete the film with Vikas Bahl.
Actor Hrithik Roshan has urged the producers of his upcoming film “Super 30” to take a “hard stand” if need be amid sexual harassment allegations against the movie’s director Vikas Bahl. “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 some sporadic information. I have requested the producers of ‘Super 30’ to take stock of the apparent facts and take a hard stand if 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,” Hrithik tweeted on Monday.
His statement comes a day after filmmaker Hansal Mehta took an indirect dig at Hrithik. Mehta had commented that as a father of two daughters, he fears they may have to deal “with such predators just because nobody took any action against (Vikas) Bahl — on the contrary a major star has acted in his new film. Who is empowered here? The victim or the creep?” This didn’t go down too well with Hrithik’s fans who trolled Mehta and led the filmmaker to quit the social media platform.
Bahl has been accused by a woman of sexually harassing her repeatedly after the first incident in 2015 in Goa. She spoke about it in the media last year and her allegations resurfaced in the wake of the #MeToo wave which has taken Bollywood by storm ever since last month Tanushree Dutta renewed a 10-year-old allegation against Nana Patekar. Phantom Films, which Bahl was a part of with business partners Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena, was last week dissolved.
It looks like the meme brigade is working overtime lately and is grabbing their hands on any Bollywood movie posters/trailers. Anushka Sharma ended up being a meme in no time after the trailer of Sui Dhaaga was out, and her funny memes were all over the place. Even Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma couldn’t resist but share the hilarious memes on their Twitter handle. It looks like after Sui Dhaaga, Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 poster is also slowly becoming a meme, as several users took to their social media handle to post funny and witty memes on the latest poster. Check out the memes below…
Actor Hrithik Roshan perhaps chose the best day to unveil the first look poster of his upcoming film Super 30, based on mathematician Anand Kumar.Some hours ago on Teacher’s Day, Hrithik shared the poster on social media. “Ab raja ka beta raja nahin banega…” reads the tagline. Hrithik sports an intense look and we can also see a group of children in the poster. Needless to say, Hrithik look quite similar to Anand Kumar IRL. Later, Hrithik revealed two more posters from the film and captioned one of them as, “Waqt badalne wala hai. Welcome to Super 30.” Take a look at the first look poster of Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30here.
Super 30 is a programme in Patna, in which Anand Kumar tutors 30 students from economically weak background for IIT-JEE entrance exams.Some months ago, team Super 30 had unveiled the first look of the film, which received a wonderful response from the audience an as well as Anand Kumar.
“I was delighted and pleasantly surprised to see the first look wherein Hrithik sports a rugged, bearded look. I had been told that at present the shooting was being done of my college days. I took out an old photograph of mine, of the time when I was studying at Patna University. I found the resemblance to be uncanny”, Anand Kumar told news agency PTI.
Super 30 has been shot in places like Varanasi and Rajasthan. It also stars TV actress Mrunal Thakur.
Directed by Vikas Bahl, Super 30 is expected to release on January 25.
A stockist, R Muralidharan of Sun Enterprises Limited, from Chennai, has filed a complaint with the police against Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan and eight other people under the pretext of conspiring against him for Rs 21 lakh.
The complainant was hired to merchandise products under a brand which was launched and promoted by Hrithik.He accused them of dissolving the marketing team which resulted in products of the brand becoming stagnant due to which he had to incur a loss.Therefore a complaint has been filed against the ‘Kaabil’ actor and the other by the Kodungaiyur police under Section 420 of the Indian Penal Code.
On the work front, Hrithik is shooting for Vikas Bahl’s Super 30 in which he is playing mathematician Anand Kumar. He will also be seen with Tiger Shroff in Siddharth Anand’s next.
The long time feud story of Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan will now be revived, albeit in a professional kind of clash. The much ambitious project of Kangana Ranaut, Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi, based on the historical tale of Rani Laxmibai will release only next year. Also, the film will be releasing during the Republic Day weekend of January, which will also see the release of Super 30.
Confirming the date of the same, the spokesperson of Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansihas released a statement saying, “Zee Studios & producer Kamal Jain proudly announce release date of the most-anticipated magnum opus, #Manikarnika -The Queen of Jhansi. Mark your calendar as this extraordinary tale of strength & valour that inspired Indians across generations comes alive on silver screen on January 25, 2019.”
The release date of Manikarnika has finally been locked after the film faced several setbacks. While the film was slated to release way earlier, it faced delays owing to its grandeur and historical backdrop. The film was expected to hit the big screens somewhere in April, followed by which it was pushed to August since it was incomplete then. After that, the makers were keen on an Independence Day release which is already occupied by another biggie, Gold starring Akshay Kumar.
And now keeping everything in mind, the makers of Manikarnika have decided to retain the January release date. Recent reports also suggest that the makers are planning on releasing a teaser in the next few days. On the other hand, the makers of Super 30 which includes Phantom, Sajid Nadiadwala and Reliance had announced that they would release the film on January 25 much earlier.
Speaking of Super 30, the film will feature Hrithik Roshan as the protagonist in a biopic for the first time. It is based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar, who coaches underprivileged yet talented kids for IIT entrance exams, by selecting 30 most talented students from the batch every year. Super 30 also stars Mrunal Thakur, Nandish Sandhu amongst others in prominent roles too.

After a massive project of Race 3, Salman Khan is all decked up for next year’s Eid bonanza. According to reports, Bhai will be reuniting with ace filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali after 11 years. Speculations also suggest that the actor has signed a film titled Inshallah and the shooting of the film will begin after Salman wraps up with Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat.
Salman last worked with Bhansali in Saawariyaa in 2008, where he played a cameo as Sonam Kapoor’s lover. A source closed to the filmmaker told Filmfare, “Sanjay has delivered some of his biggest career hits with Salman as his main lead. It’s been 11 years since the two last worked together, which is why he wants to team up with Salman yet again. The project is reportedly very special for Sanjay and he feels no one better than Salman would fit the lead role”, reports News 18.
Salman and Bhansali have been a productive pair and have given the industry some of the biggest blockbusters such as Khamoshi: The Musical and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Sadly their rapport got awry after Salman’s comment on the filmmaker’s ambitious film Guzarish, starring Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
As per Hindustan Times sources, Sanjay’s production house has recently registered the title Inshallah with Indian Motion Picture Producers’ Association (IMPPA). “Inshallah might be the title of the film that will reunite Sanjay and Salman. He got the title registered last week with IMPAA. And looking at Bhansali’s working style, he might take six to nine months to complete the final draft of the script, and he may start shooting by next year, after Salman is done with his other prior commitments including his next film, Bharat,” says the source.
As of now Salman is gearing up for Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat and Bhansali is working on his next project after a controversial but successful release of his film Padmavat, earlier this year. Adding the above elements, it seems the film will be released on Eid 2020. Everything is yet to be confirmed by either or both parties.
