Hrithik Roshan, who is seen in a very different avatar as Patna based mathematician Anand Kumar, shared his journey of the transformation.
Hrithik Roshan also called as the Greek god, or Bradley Cooper of Bollywood has a huge fan following for his killer looks, other than his acting. While choosing him to play a Bihari character was a good idea at all, is a story for another day. However, the actor shared how he worked on the transformation in a youtube video. The video is a compilation of how the actor had to learn to let of his elitism and the video starts with the famous Bhojpuri song Jab Tu Lagawelu lipstick (Talk about stereotypes). He could be heard saying, “The very first sacrifice I had to make was to make myself look unfit and out of shape.”

Gibberish helped Hrithik's tongue and cheek muscles. While it was quite embarrassing and awkward for him to scratch his body, he practiced it. The video then shows glimpses him saying two liners and singing Bhojpuri songs.” I had to get rid of the sophistication and urban westernized grace that I had been aspiring to do all my life.” Well, that’s surely some real struggles there!
Apart from working on his accent, the actor also had a heavy dose of dark toning, which almost made the actor received flak on the internet. People called him out for being racist and even though the tone darkening looked insignificant on the surface, it shouted of endorsing an everlasting stereotype.
However, the actor, including the female lead Mrunal Thakur, had defended it. Roshan had stated that for a man, who sold papad
in 45-degree heat, it was but obvious to have dark skin. Nevertheless, the transformation is surely working for the actor’s favour as the people have loved his movie. Recently, Super 30 was also declared tax-free in Bihar.Read More
