It was not long back when news surfaced that Hrithik Roshan will play the mathematician Anand Kumar who is famed for preparing poor kids for IIT examinations. Well, the first question in everyone’s mind was how the actor will manage to match the appearance in the movie titled Super 30. But Hrithik seems to have answered them all when he recently revealed a picture of himself for the film. Hrithik even impressed Anand with his look.“I was delighted and pleasantly surprised to see the first look wherein Hrithik sports a rugged, bearded look. I had been told that at present the shooting was being done of my college days. I took out an old photograph of mine, of the time when I was studying at Patna University. I found the resemblance to be uncanny”, Kumar told PTI. “I showed my photograph to my family members and asked them to compare it with Hrithik’s and their observation was similar to mine. I posted both photographs on my Facebook page and it became an instant hit, getting thousands of likes, shares, and comments. Similar was the response on Twitter,” the 45-year-old mathematician added.
Now, according to some leaked pictures on the social media site Instagram, it is confirmed that the Krish star will be sharing the silver screen with Mrunal Thakur famed for her acting in the long-running daily soap – Kumkum Bhagya. The two were spotted shooting at the Ghats of Varanasi.
“The shoot started after 2 pm on Tuesday with a pooja sequence on the banks of Ganga. After that, Hrithik and Mrunal filmed at Ramnagar Fort. A part of the fort has been converted to look like a coaching institute for the shoot,” a source told Mumbai Mirror.
If that’s not all, a source told One India, “They had reservations about the length of the role, but it is an important part. It’s a great thing for a new actress to begin her career with. As for Hrithik, he has never had any reservations about working with newcomers. He was cast opposite newbie Pooja Hegde in Mohenjo Daro.”
The movie is about a teacher who coaches a batch of 30 aspiring engineers from poor families free of cost every year. Anand has sent 450 candidates to prestigious technical institutes across the country in the last 15 years and 396 of them to the sought-after IITs such as Delhi and Kanpur.
