A few days back we reported that Hrithik Roshan will play the role of mathematician Anand Kumar in Vikas Bahl's next. Now the official confirmation has been made.
Directed by Vikas Bahl, Super 30 is based on the life of Patna-based mathematician Anand Kumar, who trains 30 deserving, economically backward students for the entrance exams of IIT each year with commendable success rate.
Mathematician Anand Kumar expressed his excitement about ‘Super 30’. He said, “I can totally trust Vikas Bahl with my life’s story as I’m confident he will make a heartfelt film out of my story. I am very happy because Hrithik Roshan is the best choice for the role. I’ve 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.”
Earlier Anand, who seemed extremely happy to have met the Kaabil actor, had posted his pictures with Hrithik on Facebook and wrote, “Just returned to Patna from Mumbai. But really I can’t forget my meeting yesterday with Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan. The way he invited me to his house and gave me the honour really showed that he is not just a great artist but also a great human being. Thanks Hrithik ji, thanks a lot.”
The buzz is that Katrina Kaif will star opposite Hrithik Roshan in the film but a confirmation on this is still awaited. Hrithik was last seen in Kabil which was released earlier this year.
