Kabir Khan To Step In For Hrithik Roshan Project

It looks like the  troubles are over for Super 30  Hrithik Roshan’s  beleaguered bio-pic on  the life  and work of mathematicianAnand  Kumar.

The much-discussed film  got itself into an uncomfortable  position when its director Vikas Behl was  accused of sexual misconduct and was  immediately asked bit its producer Phantom Films and Sajid Nadiadwala,to leave  the  project. The film’s leading man  Hrithik Roshan too seconded the  director’s  dismissal.

The  question was, how to complete the ambitious project which  is already around 90 percent complete?

The  dilemma has found a delightful exit , what 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. ButKabir, who is already working on another big bio-pic ’86 for the same  producers saw the gravity of the situation. Super  30has so far  shaped up into a finely-honed bio-pic. To leave it unfinished would be doing disservice  to  the good work thatAanand Kumar has been doing, and  to the  cause of aesthetic cinema as well.”

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  film to be produced  by Sajid Nadiadwala.
