Hrithik Roshan has announced that his upcoming film Super 30 will no longer release on July 26, along with Kangana Ranaut-starrer Mental Hai Kya. Interestingly, Mental Hai Kya producer Ekta Kapoor had changed the release date of the film from June 21 to clash with Super 30 at the box office. Though she said that it was purely a “business decision”, however, fans of Hrithik and Kangana began fighting it out on social media, soon after news of the clash broke.
Kangana’s sister Rangoli Chandel claimed in a series of tweets that Hrithik was trying to bring the actress and Mental Hai Kya down with underhand PR tactics. Now, Hrithik has decided to take a step back and avoid the clash altogether. In a statement issued by him, he said that he has taken this step “in order to save (himself) from the personal trauma and toxic mental violence this would cause”.
