Hrithik Roshan: Shifting release date of ‘Super 30’ to save myself from personal trauma and mental violence
Since the last few months, the evident clash between Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut at the box office has become the talk of the town. First, Kangana’s ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ was about to clash with Hrithik’s ‘Super 30’ in January. However, the makers of the latter’s film pushed their release date.
Interestingly, Kangana’s other film ‘Mental Hai Kya’ was all set to release the same day when ‘Super 30’ was scheduled to come out i.e on July 26. Soon, fans of both the actors got embroiled in a nasty war of words on social media, with both accusing each other of mudslinging.
Some even jumped to the conclusion that Kangana is doing this purposely to get back at Hrithik. Rangoli Chandel even openly challenged Hrithik and his team that if they make any underhand attacks on her sister Kangana, she will teach them a lesson.
Now there’s a twist in the story. Hrithik has issued a statement stating that he has personally asked his producers to change the release date of ‘Super 30’ in order to save himself from personal trauma and mental violence.
The actor’s statement read, “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.”

Earlier, producer Ekta Kapoor had also posted a message saying that all the criticism should be directed towards her and not on Kangana as it was her decision to release ‘Mental Hai Kya’ on July 26.
The ugly underground tweets have begun. I‘ve promised to keep it clean and have assurances from my actors on the same.
I hope personal assaults on them stop, because it’s my decision & Not theirs.

‘Mental Hai Kya’ was first scheduled to release on June 21. But later it got pushed to July 26, and soon, gossip mongers started talking about the personal agendas of the actors involved as the reason behind the shift in the date.
Now it has to be seen when the makers of ‘Super 30’ finally release their film.
