Mumbai: Earlier this month, Hrithik said he was changing the release date of Super 30 to save his film from being “desecrated by yet another media circus”. The date was yet to be declared.
The actor’s statement came after the release of his bugbear Kangana Ranaut’s Mental Hai Kya was changed to 26 July, only to coincide with the then theatrical arrival of Super 30, a claim producer Ekta Kapoor dismissed, saying the decision had nothing to do with Kangana’s equation with Hrithik.
Super 30, based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar and his educational programme Super 30, is produced by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and Reliance Entertainment.
“Arriving early! #Super30 will be releasing on July 12,” the official handle of Reliance Entertainment tweeted on Saturday.

In her response to the earlier change in Super 30 date, Kangana alleged Hrithik was in on the decision from the beginning, calling the statement a “sob story”.
The film has had a tough birth.
Earlier, Super 30 was scheduled to be released on 25 January, the same date as Kangana’s Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi.
In 2016, Kangana claimed that Hrithik and she were in a relationship but her Krrish 3 co-star said it was not true. The fight became public after Hrithik sued her and Kangana counter-sued him.
Super 30, also featuring Amit Sadh, Mrunal Thakur and Nandish Sandhu, found itself at the centre of controversy over allegations of sexual harassment against the film’s director Vikas Bahl last October.
