The ace director who shares a good rapport with Hrithik Roshan will now complete the ambitious project.
It looks like the troubles are over for Hrithik Roshan’s beleaguered bio-pic on the life and work of mathematician Anand Kumar. The much-discussed film got itself into an uncomfortable position when its director Vikas Bahl was accused of sexual misconduct and was immediately asked by the producers Phantom Films and Sajid Nadiadwala, to leave the project. The film’s leading man Hrithik Roshan too seconded the director’s dismissal. But how would this project be readied for release given that some filming was still pending? The dilemma has found a delightful exit with the redoubtable Kabir Khan stepping in to complete the ambitious project.
An informed 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 biopic.” It is understood that Kabir, who has earlier directed such monumental hits as Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Ek Tha Tiger, will be required to “tie up the loose ends” and do all the post-production work for Super 30.
Incidentally, Kabir Khan shares a terrific rapport with Hrithik Roshan. The former will soon be directing the latter in a film to be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala.
