Post #MeToo movement, many known faces from Bollywood have joined the list of accused in sexual harassment cases. One of them is ex co-owner of Phantom Films and filmmaker Vikas Bahl. A former female co-worker accused him of sexual harassment recently. Post this, Phantom Films was dissolved. This has now also affected his upcoming directorial 'Super 30'. According to the latest reports, he will no more be a part of Hrithik Roshan starrer film after this controversy. This has also led to the delaying of the production of the film and the release.
The makers of Super 30 have decided to bring a new director on board, reports Bollywood Hungama. They have also categorically asked him to stay away from the editing, production and promotional process of the film, the reports suggest. In fact, a new set of experts are being searched to deal with the VFX and CGI of the film. Sanjay Khan Still Refers to Hrithik Roshan As His Son-in-Law and the Reason Is Valid Enough.
This development has also affected the original release date of the film which is January 25. It may be pushed to indefinite time depending on the changes and completion of the post-production work. The film was earlier engulfed in a controversy post mathematician Anand Kumar was caught up in a fraud case. The film which was earlier supposed to be a biopic was turned into a fictional one. Meanwhile, Vikas reacted to all the allegations against him saying, "I deny all the alleged sexual harassment charges leveled against me and as stated in your said notice. These alleged charges are not only false, erroneous, malicious, motivated but have no factual basis." If released on the said date, it will clash with Kangana Ranaut starrer Manikarnika.
