Bollywood is always known to make biopics and actor Hrithik Roshan has been confirmed to play the role of mathematician Anand Kumar in his biopic Super 30.
Among multiple rumours and speculations around the casting of the much-awaited biopic of Anand Kumar, Super 30, producers make it official that the Hrithik has been signed to play the math genius.
Directed by Vikas Bahl, the film will showcase the life of the Patna-based scholar, who trains 30 deserving, economically-backward students for IIT-JEE entrance exams every year with commendable success rate.
Mathematician Anand Kumar too expressed his excitement about the same saying, “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.”
Talking about Hrithik being chosen to play him onscreen, the maths genius said the actor is the perfect choice to essay him on celluloid.
“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.
“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,” he said in a statement.
Hrithik had met Kumar a few weeks ago to understand his character better and their pictures went viral on social media.
