The repercussions of #MeToo have been evident with filmmakers and actors expressing their solidarity in support to the movement by disassociating the sexual predators from their projects, even before they are lawfully pronounced guilty for their crime.


The movement certainly heralds positive outcomes to some extent while also affecting the development of the projects.


Ever since Vikas Bahl has been accused of sexual harassment, his association with the films has been affected majorly. Although, he is struggling to prove his innocence, the producers of Super 30 and Hrithik Roshan have expelled Vikas Bahl from directing the film.


After Vikas Bahl's exit from Super 30, director Kabir Khan has stepped in as the new director of the film. Although, a major portion of Super 30 was shot by Vikas Bahl, Kabir Khan will shoot the remaining 10 percent of the film.


Informing about the same, a source close to the development revealed to a leading daily, "It is not a small thing for any renowned director to step in at this last hour to complete a film. But Kabir, who is already working on another big biopic '83 for the same producers (Phantom Films) saw the gravity of the situation. Super 30 has so far shaped up into a finely-honed biopic. To leave it unfinished would be doing disservice to the good work that Anand Kumar has been doing, and to the cause of aesthetic cinema as well."


Super 30 stars Hrithik Roshan who will essay the role of a real life Patna based mathematician, Anand Kumar.
