Bollywood actors Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan are all set for a clash in the professional sphere. Their upcoming films Mental Hai Kya and Super 30, respectively, are set to release on the same day.
Earlier, Hrithik's Super 30 was supposed to hit the theatres on January 26 this year, the same day as Kangana's Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. But later, Super 30 was pushed to July 26.
But it seems the clash wasn't averted after all, now that Mental Hai Kya's release date has been pushed from July 21 to 26. The Kangana and Rajkummar Rao film was initially supposed to release in March, but the Ekta Kapoor production was then pushed to June 21 as some of the patchwork was still left, reported DNA. Now, the release date has been postponed once again. The film has been directed by Prakash Kovelamudi.
Hrithik is playing mathematician Anand Kumar in Super 30. The first look posters of both the films have piqued the interest of cinegoers, and it will be interesting to see the two movies battle it out at the box office.
The makers of Mental Hai Kya have issued a statement saying that the release of their film with Super 30 is purely a business decision. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the statement.
Kangana and Hrithik had a very public fight in 2016, when Kangana spoke about her 'silly exes' in an interview. Hrithik had tweeted in response, which sparked off a series of ugly exchanges between the stars in the media. Kangana accused Hrithik of dating her behind his wife Sussanne's back, but the actor vehemently denied the allegations, saying he never associated with her outside of the professional sphere.
