Hrithik Roshan, often eulogised as the Greek God of Hindi cinema, should have been in People’s Republic of China by now. The 46-year-old behind last year’s biggest hit, War, was all set to fly there late last month to promote Super 30, the 2019 biopic of mathematician Anand Kumar, ahead of its release in April.

Wuhan, where the virus first surfaced last year, has rec­ently come out of a 76-day lockdown, but the situation appears to be far from normal.
