Super 30 is Hrithik Roshan’s big comeback after a break of two years and the actor has been sharing various glimpses of the film via social media.
This biographical drama film chronicles the story of the life and works of Indian educationalist and mathematician Anand Kumar, who has helped many students achieve their big dreams.
Anand was born in Patna, Bihar, and studied at a Hindi medium government school, as his father was a clerk and could not afford to send his son to a private school. Due to his brilliance in mathematics, Anand managed to secure admission in Cambridge University but was unable to pursue his studies there due to his father’s demise and some financial issues.
He started tutoring and eventually established Ramanujan School of Mathematics (RSM) in his hometown, which coaches students who are preparing for IIT-JEE, the highly competitive entrance exams for Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs).
After a student from an economically backward background requested his help, Anand came up with the idea of his Super 30 educational programme.
Through this programme, Anand annually selects 30 intelligent students from less privileged backgrounds, on merit basis, and then coaches them for IIT-JEE. Till date, 422 out of 480 students of this programme have managed to secure admission at the IITs, due to which Anand’s work has been featured in a documentary by the Discovery Channel. He also won the S. Ramanujan Award and Maulana Abul Kalam Azad Shiksha Puraskar in 2010. Anand’s name was also included in Time magazine’s list of Best of Asia 2010.
The trailer of Super 30 has been highly appreciated by audiences and celebrities, and according to media reports, an ecstatic Anand Kumar has flown to Mumbai to meet and thank Hrithik for portraying him in this biopic. Super 30 is slated for release on 12th July 2019.
