New Delhi, May 9 : Amid the controversy over the box-office clash between Hrithik Roshan’s 'Super 30' and Kangana Ranaut’s 'Mental Hai Kya', Hrithik on Thursday announced that he has decided to shift the release date of his film.
Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, Hrithik said,'So as to not allow my film to be desecrated by yet another media circus, I have decided to shift the release date of my film SUPER 30 in order to save myself from the personal trauma and toxic mental violence this would cause. Despite the film being ready, I have requested my producers to shift and announce the next suitable date as soon as possible.'
'Over the past few years, to my utter dismay, I have been witness to a lot of us cheering and encouraging what was/is an open and blatant case of harassment. I must even now, wait patiently and silently for the collective consciousness of society to take cognizance of such matters in order to maintain our faith in civility of our society. This unrelenting helplessness must end,' he added.
'Super 30' is an upcoming biographical drama film directed by Vikas Bahl, based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar and his educational programme Super 30. The film stars Hrithik Roshan as Kumar and Mrunal Thakur. (UNI)
