On Thursday night mathematical wizard Anand Kumar and his wife watched his bio-pic Super 30, starring Hrithik Roshan in the title role, in Mumbai with a selected audience. Anand says he couldn’t control his tears. “It was like reliving all my struggle strife and conflicts. Believe me the hardships that you see me facing in the film are not even a fraction of what I’ve gone through.”

How much of what we see on screen is Anand’s real story? “Most of it actually happened to me. Of course the climactic shootout in the hospital never happened. And I never had a girlfriend who married someone else. That is artistic licence. But my relationship with my parents and with my brother is accurate. In fact my brother has been even more supportive than shown in the film.”

Anand says he is “fully satisfied” with the way his life has been brought to the screen. “I don’t know how much I’ve achieved or whether I’ve done anything worthy of such a big film. But the fact that the producers found me worthy of a film and they got a star of Hrithik Roshan’s stature to play my role on screen, is a very big thing for me.”

With the joy comes the rains. Anand admits he suffers from a benign brain tumour. “It isn’t cancerous. It was detected in 2014. Since then I’ve lost all my hearing in my right ear. But life is good. God has given more than I ever expected. The film Super 30 makes me very proud. I broke down and I cried when all of Hrithik Roshan’s his 30 students qualified into the IIT. It was a moment where I couldn’t express my emotions when it had happened. In real life I am not at all demonstrative. Hrithik has shown me how to express myself.”

Super 30 opened to good reviews and has been doing well at the box office too. Watch Masala!’s review of Super 30 here:
