Seems like rumors are going rife that MeToo accused Vikas Bahl has been paid off to be dropped from directing his venture, Super 30, starring Hrithik Roshan.
Post the grave accusations from several victims during the Me Too movement in Bollywood at large, Vikas Bahl’s venture Super 30 had quite an uncertain future. However, this Hrithik Roshan starrer was saved by none other than close associate Anurag Kashyap, who took matters into his own hands to finish it all by the deadline.
A movie based on the math wiz. Anand Kumar, is suggested upon to have Bahl’s name dropped from the credit slate entirely. According to the reports of a leading daily, the suggestion has come from none other than superstar actor Hrithik Roshan, who’s got zero tolerance towards sexual harassment against women.
A source from the production team revealed to the daily, “Since the allegation was not proven in court after the survivor refused to take the case further, Vikas hasn’t faced any legal repercussions.”

“However, Hrithik is clear that he doesn’t want the director to be associated with the film. The producers have offered Vikas a severance package – one that is said to be significantly higher than the remuneration he was promised – to compensate for dropping his name from credit roll.”
Seems like Hrithik Roshan isn’t in mood to take any chances or controversies around his next film, and considering the ongoing situations it is best to take this step!
