Producer Priti Sinha of Reel Life Entertainment who was earlier supposed to producer Vikas Bahl’s ‘Super 30’ starring Hrithik Roshan along with Madhu Mantena of Phantom Films, has now backed out of the project. Priti has reportedly left the film after the fallout with Mantena over a strong differences.
“Priti Sinha had second thoughts about remaining involved in the making of the mathematician Anand Kumar biopic and absolved herself from the project.
What exactly led to a fallout between thick friends Mantena and Priti was that Priti wanted Akshay Kumar in the lead but Mantena was keen on Hrithik. Reportedly- parallel negotiations were on with both the stars, and somehow Mantena got Hrithik on board,” Spotboye reported today.
Priti’s father Vinay Sinha who had produced Salman Khan and Aamir Khan starrer classic comedy, ‘Andaaz Apna Apna’ confirmed her withdraw. “The film makes no commercial sense to us anymore. We can’t work with more than one director at the same (referring to the Phantom quartet). We have decided to move on. Let Anand Kumar put his life story on celluloid with anyone. We are definitely not doing Super 30. Dekha jaye to waise bhi itna late ho gaya hai, we had discussed Super 30 with Madhu two years ago and isn’t that a fairly long time?” he said.
Anand Kumar on whom the film is being made also clarified that Priti Sinha is no more a part of ‘Super 30’. “Yes, I am aware that Priti is not producing my biopic and it’s only Madhu Mantena now. Whether it’s just Mantena or his company Phantom Films I really don’t know the intricacies. But let me also tell you how it happened. I had an agreement with Priti till August 12, 2017. Soon after that, she told me that she is not keen on continuing with it. So, we parted ways.”
