Hrithik Roshan defers his film release over ‘media circus’
MUMBAI: Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan has announced that he was shifting the release date of his upcoming film ‘Super30’ due to what he described as yet another media circus.
“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,” Roshan said in a Twitter statement.
The actor has also requested his producers to announce the next suitable date as early as possible.
“Despite the film being ready, I have requested my producers to shift and announce the next suitable date as soon as possible,” he said.
“Over the past few years, to my utter dismay, I have been witness to a lot of us cheering and encouraging what was/is an open and blatant case of harassment.
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,” he said.
