Mumbai: Hrithik Roshan’s first look as mathematician Anand Kumar in ‘Super 30’ released some days back and it quickly become talk of the town. The ‘Kaabil’ actor is currently busy in the first shooting schedule of the forthcoming film.
According to a report in DNA, the unit will move to Mumbai and a whopping Rs 10-crore set is being erected at a suburban studio where a major portion of the film is likely to be shot. The reason behind this is the unbearable hot climate in Bihar which will get worse once summer starts. The makers of ‘Super 30’ decided that Hrithik, who is playing a lead role, will be comfortable shooting in an air-conditioned set in Mumbai.
The film is reportedly based on the life story of Anand Kumar, who hails from Bihar. Anand trains 30 deserving and economically backward students for the most prestigious exams of IIT each year with a commendable success rate.
In the recent interview, Anand expressed his happiness over the fact that Hrithik is essaying his life on a big screen. He had said, "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.”
Directed by 'Queen' fame Vikas Bahl, 'Super 30' is expected to release later this year.
