Finally, the question of who will play the reel-life role of mathematician Anand Kumar is answered. Vikas Bahl biopic titled 'Super 30' will star Hrithik Roshan as the mathematics genius. The film will display the true-life story of Patna-based mathematician Anand Kumar, who teaches 30 economically backward students for the IIT exams each year with successful results.
An insider quoted, "2017 has been great for Hrithik, so after impressing audiences as well as critics in Kaabil early this year as a visually-impaired man, he will start shooting for the Anand Kumar biopic within a few days. It goes without saying that makers are excited about Hrithik coming onboard for the film as he has always been their first choice."
Couple of days back a meeting picture of Anand along with Hrithik Roshan and Vikas Bahl was out which had the three of them discussing the film. "That meeting was intended to discuss the nitty-gritty of the film," the insider adds.
The film will not just showcase what world knows about Anand, but also show his struggle and inside story that the world is unaware of. Let us see how Hrithik gets the neck of this character as we have never seen him in such a role before.
The makers of the film first contacted Anand and approached him with the idea of making a film on his life. With sheer enthusiasm, Anand said, "I can totally trust Vikas Bahl with my life's story as I feel he can put out my story in the best way possible."
Speaking about Hrithik to play his on-screen role Anand further said, "I am very happy because he is the best choice for the role. I have seen his work and the kind of versatility and range that he exhibits as an actor is very strong. I am a rooted guy so I feel some level of an emotional quotient is required to live my life on screen. I have seen that in Hrithik – on and off screen. I have full faith in his capabilities."
