Super 30 marks Roshan's return to films after a gap of two years. Besides Roshan, the film also stars Mrunal Thakur, Amit Sadh, and Nandish Sandhu in pivotal roles. It has been directed by Vikas Bahl, and co-produced by Reliance Entertainment, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, and the now-dissolved Phantom Films.
Recently, Bihar Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi had declared the film tax-free in the state. Following the announcement, Roshan had met with Modi as well as Kumar in Patna. At a press conference the actor said to Press Trust of India, "The journey of Super 30 has been a long one. I consider myself lucky to have known, in the process, Anand sir. I got the opportunity to visit this city on the day of Guru Poornima and I have sought the blessings of Anand sir after touching his feet."
Super 30 was also made tax-free in Rajasthan on 18 July (Thursday), with Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot calling it an "inspiration" and an "excellent example of exceptional willpower and determination."
