Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 was supposed to come out on January 25, making it a big clash with Kangana Ranaut's Manikarnika: The Queen. The pans went topsy turvy after the resurgence of the #MeToo movement on social media in which prominent celebs were accused of sexual harassment. Amidst these allegations, Super 30's director Vikas Bahl's case was also revisited. He was accused of sexually harassing an employee of his production house, the now-dissolved Phantom Films. The director was asked to stay away from the film, whose shooting has already been completed, and the release date has been pushed ahead. Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 to Now Release on July 26, 2019.
The movie's producer, Reliance Entertainment, has confirmed that Super 30 will release on July 30. Now, as per an article in Huffington Post, Anurag Kashyap has now taken over the reins from Bahl and is overlooking the post-production work of the film. He was taken over the duties after getting approval from his estranged business partner, Bahl. Vikash Bahl and Anurag Kashyap (along with Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena) were the founders of Phantom Films.
This partnership, as well as their friendship, were dissolved last year, after Kashyap openly criticised Bahl over the allegations. Super 30 is the production house's last production.

Anurag, talking to Huffington Post, confirmed his involvement in Super 30, while also revealing that he won't be taking any credit. He said, "At the moment I am getting Womaniya started, but yes, I will be overseeing the post-production of Super 30." It is also speculated that it was Hrithik Roshan who wanted Kashyap to take over the film.
Super 30 is based on the life of Anand Kumar, the math genius from Bihar. Kumar had started a chain of coaching classes that train poor but brilliant students and prepare them for IIT.
