The MeToo movement has given a shock to many in Bollywood film industry and one of the accuses of the movement was director Vikas Bahl. Director Vikas Bahl was accused of sexual harassment by several of her assistant directors and co-workers.

As soon his name came into the MeToo movement, Hrithik Roshan who was working with him in his next directorial venture Super 30 has clearly taken a stand against him. He even tweeted, he can never work with a person, guilty of such a malice act. Many reports also suggested that it became the reason why Super 30 failed to release on the slated date of 25th January 2019.

However, now after the allegations were not been proved against director Vikas Bahl in the court he was supposed to do the work in the film. Despite that, the actor Hrithik Roshan is not comfortable working Vikas Bahl and he even insisted the makers to brought the director Anurag Kashyap for the film.

A close source told "Since the allegations 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 the credit role."

The film also stars Mrunal Thakur in the leading role and it is slated to release on 26th July 2019.
