NEW DELHI:Over the last few months, there has been much conjecture on whether Hrithik Roshan will star in the biopic of mathematician Anand Kumar, titled Super 30. Well, there is finally some good news for the actor’s fans. Today morning, trade analyst Taran Adarsh, who is known to keep everyone updated on the happenings in Bollywood, delighted us with his tweet that confirmed that the 43-year-old actor has been officially signed up by filmmaker Vikas Bahl to play the mathematics genius. “#BreakingNews: Hrithik Roshan to play mathematician #AnandKumar in his biopic, titled #Super30… Vikas Bahl will direct the film,” Mr Adarsh tweeted.
#Super30 has been trending on Twitter as Hrithik Roshan fans are unable to contain their excitement. “Would be great to see @iHrithik, solve Differential and Integral Equations and motivating students to crack IIT 😀 #Super30,” wrote one Twitter user. “Finally most sexy teacher is coming to teach mathematics. #super30,” read another tweet.
Last month, a picture from one of the meetings between Hrithik Roshan and mathematician Anand Kumar went viral on the Internet.
Super 30 will trace Patna-based mathematician Anand Kumar’s journey to fame as the founder of the Super 30 programme that trains IIT aspirants. Mr Kumar selects 30 students from economically weaker sections every year and prepares them for the Joint Entrance Exam, which is the first step to get through Indian Institute of Technology.
Anand Kumar, in a statement to news agency PTI, said that he trusts Vikas Bahl with his life story and he believes that the filmmaker will ‘make a heartfelt film.’
Talking about Hrithik portraying him on the big screen, Anand Kumar said, “I am very happy because he (Hrithik) 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,” reported PTI.
“I am a rooted guy so I feel some level of 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,” he added.
