The Hrithik Roshan starrer Super 30, which started on a low note, has picked up the pace. The first day collections closed at Rs 11.75 crore, but the movie picked up on the weekend adding Rs 18 crore on Saturday and Rs 20.50 crore on the third day. The movie thus now soars at a collection that has crossed Rs 50 Crore mark at the box office within the first three days itself.
The movie is based on Anand Kumar, a Patna-based mathematics genius. In order to help underprivileged children aspiring for IIT entrances, he opened a program where he took the top 30 students and prepared them for the top engineering institute. Hrithik portrays the role of Kumar in this movie, also starring Mrunal Thakur.

This led to several delays in the film's release. Post the film hit the theatres, Hrithik’s two shade darker tone look was bashed by fans and critics alike.
