Hrithik Roshan-starrer ‘Super 30’ is being edited for a final release, and the team has decided that the project will have no director credit in its titles! Vikas Bahl, of the now dissolved Phantom Films, has directed the project but the flick suffered delays after he was named in the #MeToo controversy for sexual harassment. Anurag Kashyap is now seeing the project to its end, handling the post-production and editing. However, the credit roll of the film will not have Anurag or Vikas Bahl’s name in it. The victim, who named Bahl in the sexual allegations, was an employee of Phantom Films. Since she decided to not go ahead with the legal procedure, no legal action was taken against the filmmaker.
When Vikas Bahl’s named was embroiled in the #MeToo controversy, ‘Super 30’s’ lead actor Hrithik Roshan had also expressed his displeasure. “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 only sporadic information. I have requested the producers of ‘Super 30’ to take stock of the apparent facts and also take a harsh 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 had stated back then. ‘Super 30’ was to hit the screens with Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’, however it was delayed and is now slated to release on July 26.
