Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 landed in trouble when its director Vikas Bahl was named as one of the perpetrators in the MeToo movement. There were reports that he would complete the remaining portions of the film but the leading man wasn’t comfortable to work with someone who has been accused of sexual assault. However, the makers can take a sigh of relief as they have found solace in Kabir Khan, who is now set to replace Bahl and helm the much-delayed biopic of Anand Kumar.
A source says, “It is not a small thing for any renowned director to step in at his last hour to complete a film. But Kabir, who is already working on another big biopic ’83 for the same producers saw the gravity of the situation. Super 30 has so far shaped up into a finely-honed bio-pic. To leave it unfinished would be doing a disservice to the good work that Anand Kumar has been doing, and to the cause of aesthetic cinema as well.”
But we come back to the same question that was raised a few months back- Can this film make it to the cinemas on January 25? Let’s wait and watch!
