Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut will no longer lock horns on box office. The makers of 'Super 30' have decided to shift the film's release date.
Days after Ekta Kapoor announced the revised release date of 'Mental hai Kya,' Hrithik Roshan shared an official statement on his Twitter page stating that he is postponing the release date of his film.
"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 'Super30' in order to save myself from the personal trauma and toxic mental violence this would cause," the statement read.
He asserted that despite the film being ready, he has requested his producer to shift the released date.
While he did not announce the revised date, the actor said it will be announced "As soon as possible."
"I must even now, wait patiently and silently for the collective consciousness of society to take cognizance of such matters in order to maintain our faith in civility of our society. this unrelenting helplessness must end," the statement concluded.
It all started when on Tuesday, Kapoor announced that the release date of Kangana Ranaut-starrer 'Mental hai Kya' has been pushed from June 21 to July 26, which was the same date when Hrithik's Super 30 was scheduled to hit the screens.
Hours after the announcement was made, the makers of 'Super 30' confirmed that they have not made any changes in the release date and the film will hit the big screens on July 26.
Soon after the news came out, many started speculating that Kangana is deliberately releasing her film on the same day because she wants to lock horns with Hrithik.
Reacting to these speculations, Kangana's sister, Rangoli Chandel, on Wednesday, went on a twitter rant and slammed Hrithik for maligning Kangana's name.
She also revealed that Ekta and Hrithik Roshan met before the filmmaker announced the changed release date.
"Kangana told Ekta Kapoor not to release MHK on 26th but Ekta said it is her prerogative as a producer to decide the release date, then she had a meeting with her childhood friend Hrithik and they both took this call," Rangoli asserted," Rangoli tweeted.
The film, which also stars Rajkummar Rao, has been directed by National Award-winning filmmaker Prakash Kovelamudi.
