Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 has been under the radar for a very long time now. The film was previously set to release on January 25th, but due to some sexual allegations by a woman from the crew on the director Vikas Bahl, the film has now been slated to release on 12th July, 2019. Now that all the the allegations have been cleared, Hrithik Roshan has come out in the open to talk about it.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Hrithik said, “When the #MeToo movement broke out and Vikas’ name cropped up, I was perhaps the first one to take a rather tough stand. I completely support this movement and I sincerely believe that exploitative attitude towards women must stop.”
He added, “Also, if you think that this movement is the last step in achieving equality, then perhaps you are wrong. The pendulum of biases and injustice on both sides is going to swing back and forth quite a few times before it centres and comes to a standstill. Also, it’s important that we don’t make this process independent of law, and purely based on social media/conventional media hearsay. Let not the rhetoric become the mantra.”
He went on to say, “Like everything else, this movement also has to follow the law of the land. Charges have to be pressed and substantiated in the proper manner. I may feel strongly about something, but we cannot take the law in our hands and dole out mob justice. Since a designated ICC committee has exonerated Vikas, we are not in a position to take away his credit.”
Ahead of the release of his forthcoming film “Super 30“, actor Hrithik Roshan shared a glimpse of his first meeting with his 30 students who later made up the cast of the movie.
Describing them as “most incredible spirit”, Hrithik took to Instagram and wrote: “When I entered the room, I never imagined I would be standing before such dynamic packets of talent that would synergize their energies with mine forever.”
“The first class of ‘Super 30‘ began with me learning quite a few lessons of incredible spirit! My class of Super 30,” he added along with a video in which he can be seen interacting with the youngsters.
Based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar, who trains students for IIT-JEE in Bihar, “Super 30” is directed by Vikas Bahl. The film will see Hrithik in the shoes of Kumar.
“Super 30” will release on Friday.
