The fate of sa biopic based on the life of Bihari mathematician Anand Kumar, has been in a state of flux for a while now, but it looks like the film will finally see the light of day.
The project was derailed earlier this month when director Vikas Bahl was accused of sexual misconduct by an unnamed employee of Phantom Films. But since then, the lady has declined to initiate legal proceedings against the filmmaker, thus clearing the coast for him to return to the project.
Says a source close to the development, “Vikas is not being taken back into the production company. But since the lady has withdrawn her case, the project needs to be completed and released.”
To get the project back on track, producer Madhu Matena is said to have flown to Lisbon, where the film’s lead actor Hrithik Roshan is currently stationed, to convince him to get back on board. After a long meeting, the star is reported to have agreed to return and complete the film with Vikas.
