Hrithik Roshan will be doing yet another movie in the Krrish franchise, directed and produced by his father, Rakesh Roshan. The Bollywood actor had to make a choice between working on his father’s film or working on Vikas Bahl’s biopic on Patna-based mathematician Anand Kumar.
According to a Mid-Day report, Bahl’s film, reportedly titled Super 30, was scheduled to go on floors this year, but will now only begin next year.
“The script is being worked on. Though Hrithik has agreed to do the movie, the paperwork is yet to be done. Since Rakesh Roshan is in the last leg of scripting Krrish 4, Hrithik wants to start prep for that film first. His father’s film is his first priority,” a source told the daily.
The report also suggested that Bahl had to delay the project owing to the molestation charges against him and the need to lie low for a while. “It has been done to ensure the controversy he got embroiled in a few months ago doesn’t take the focus away from the movie,” adds the source.
Vikas Bahl, director of films such as Queen and Shaandaar, is a part of the production and distribution company Phantom Films, along with directors Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena, allegedly molested a woman during a trip to Goa, months before it came to light in April this year.
Krrish 4, meanwhile, is aiming for a Christmas release next year. The film will have Hrithik reprise his superhero role, and will also include new characters this time.
