Hrithik Roshan’s latest film titled Super 30 is based on the life mathematician Anand Kumar who is known for his teaching program Super 30 for underprivileged students who he prepared for the IIT entrance exam. The film released on July 12 this year and is getting a response from the audience.
Almost a week after the film’s release, Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan visited Anand Kumar’s hometown Patna. During his short visit to Bihar’s capital city, he appeared to greet the audience gathered at Hotel Maurya where he also bent down and touched Anand Kumar’s feet in full public view.
Anand Kumar, who received Hrithik at Patna airport couldn’t control his emotions regarding the superstar’s visit, said, “Hrithikji‘s Patna visit was long due. He came like a hero and left like a super-hero.”
Anand also mentioned that he was overwhelmed with Hrithik’s gesture of respect towards him. he further shared, “He said it was Guru Purnima and on this occasion when all students honor their teachers, he wanted to touch my feet. And he did! For such a big star to show such humility kindness and generosity is rare. If he says I am his guru then I say I’m Hrithik Roshan’s fan. I want to thank him for taking my story to every corner of the world.”
During Hrithik’s visit to Patna, he was all praises of the mathematician in front of the residents of the city and also confessed that he didn’t know about Anand Kumar and his work before he signed the film.
Talking about Hrithik’s performance in the film, Anand Kumar once said in an interview, “I am a middle-class man and in my life most of the time I am sweating, giving lectures and I usually roam from one place to other, so my skin would definitely be tan. I believe Hrithik is a perfectionist. The team of Super 30 stayed with me in Patna and observed me for a few days. As far as language is concerned, we are not talking in Bhojpuri but in Magahi language. Hrithik did work a lot on getting his look and language right. He has got the exact language and (skin) tone.”
Directed by Vikas Bahl, the film also stars Mrunal Thakur, Pankaj Tripathi, Aditya Srivastava, and Nandish Singh.
