Hrithik Roshan has turned into a mathematician for this upcoming biopic. Called Super 30 on ‘mage-mathician’ nand Kumar is ready for a July release. And the film’s promotion promises to be as interesting as the film, if not more. Producer Madhu Mantena has convinced Hrithik Roshan and his screen alter-ego Anand to promote the film together.
Says a source close to the development, “This is the first time for a bio-pic that that the real and reel character would be promoting a film together. At first Anand was not willing to share the platform with a superstar. It seemed to him that being seen with Hrithik would make him Anand look star-struck. But Mantena convinced Anand that the audience would love them together and would be more excited about seeing the film after they see the real and onscreen avatars of Anand Kumar together.”
When quizzed Anand Kumar said, “Who can say no to Madhu Mantena? He is such a generous and kind-hearted producer. I’m going by his gut feeling in every aspect of Super 30.”
Super 30 was in the midst of controversy last year when its director Vikas Bahl was accused of sexual harassment during the #Metoo movement. The fate of the film was in jeopardy when Hrithik Roshan had second thoughts about acting or promoting it but Vikas Bahl was then removed from the film and it was said that Anurag Kashyap had been roped in to give it the final touches. In the wake of #MeToo, Vikas was asked to step down from all the projects and Phantom Films had also been dissolved.
