Story highlights

The film is currently in its post-production stage. 

As #MeToo movement gains momentum in India, prominent names from Bollywood have been accused of sexually harassing women over the years. Director of 'Queen', Vikas Bahl, has been accused by multiple women, including Kangana Ranaut, of sexual misconduct. 

Bahl's film 'Super 30' is up for release in January and its leading man Hrithik Roshan, in a statement, has mentioned that he has requested producers of the film to take strict action against Bahl if proven guilty. Roshan has stated that he would not want to work with someone like Bahl. 

Now, media reports suggest that Bahl may not be credited for his work in 'Super 30'. A source close to the film spoke to a daily and said, "Co-producer Reliance Entertainment is seriously considering dropping Vikas's name from the credit roll. That is what all corporate firms are doing in Hollywood."

The development comes soon after the dissolution of Phantom Films, which was co-producing 'Super 30' along with Reliance Entertainment and Sajid Nadiadwala. The film is based on Math wizard Anand Kumar and is in post-production stage. Bahl is reportedly taking care of the post-production work and news has it that he will be asked to dissociate himself from the project.

Bahl will also be dropped from the Kapil Dev biopic '83' that had him as the co-producer.
