Hrithik Roshan issued a statement postponing the release of ‘Super 30’ to avoid clash with Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Mental Hai Kya’.
Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 will not clash with the Kangana Ranaut-Rajkummar Rao starrer Mental Hai Kya. The actor issued a statement postponing the release of his film.
In a statement released on Twitter, Hrithik announced that he had requested producers to postpone the release of the film to prevent it from being desecrated by yet another media circus.
Hrithik has issued a statement saying that he has decided to shift the release date of Super 30 to save himself from the “personal trauma” and “toxic mental violence”. Though Hrithik did not name Kangana, he hinted at their long-standing ugly public spat.

The announcement comes two days after Balaji Motion Pictures denied that the release of Mental Hai Kya was deliberately pushed to clash with Hrithik’s film and gain free publicity. The date change was purely for business prospects, the production company claimed in a statement on Tuesday.
Starring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkumar Rao, Mental Hai Kya was previously slated for June 21 release. The film is directed by Prakash Kovelamudi.
Terming Hrithik’s statement a “sob story”, Kangana issued the following statement:

The release date of Mental Hai Kya was pushed a few days back. It was announced that Kangana’s Mental Hai Kya will release on July 26, along with Hrithik’s Super 30. This news comes as a big shock for Bollywood as Kangana and Hrithik had a public tiff in 2016 that involved the duo making personal attacks and slamming legal notices.
Super 30 is a biographical drama film based on the life of Indian mathematician Anand Kumar. The films also stars Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Tripathi.
With Super 30 being pushed back again, Hrithik Roshan fans have to wait even longer. It is the third time that the movie has been pushed in the last year. We hope Hrithik finally finds a suitable date to release his next.
