New Delhi: Actor Hrithik Roshan, who is all set to emulate Indian mathematician Anand Kumar in his upcoming film 'Super 30', took to his social media to congratulate Anand's team for cracking IIT-JEE this time too.
Twenty-six out of thirty students from Super-30 coaching institute by Anand Kumar passed the engineering entrance exams with flying colours.
Congratulating Anand, Hrithik Roshan aka on screen Anand Kumar posted a picture and captioned it, "Congratulations to all of you. Anand Sir you have done it again. Making the world better one student at a time. #Super30 @teacheranand".

In 'Super 30', Hrithik will portray the character of a mathematician Anand Kumar, who trains 30 meritorious students from the economically backward society for the IIT entrance exam. This is for the first time that the actor will be seen playing a teacher on the big screens.
Directed by Vikas Bahl of the Queen fame, 'Super 30' will be jointly produced by Reliance Entertainment and Nadiadwala and Grandson Entertainment.
Hrithik and Anand had met about a few months ago to discuss the project. Anand, who was mighty impressed by Hrithik’s hospitality, took to Facebook to write: “Just returned to Patna from Mumbai. But really I can't forget my meeting yesterday with Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan. The way he invited me to his house and gave me the honour really showed that he is not just a great artist but also a great human being. Thanks, Hrithik Ji, thanks a lot (sic).”
Roshan hasn’t had a great time at the Box Office since Bang Bang in 2014. His release in 2016 – Mohenjo Daro – proved to be a disaster at the Box Office but Kaabil, his home production, which released early last year, did decent business.
He has been roped in by Yash Raj Films for an out-and-out action film co-starring Tiger Shroff and Vaani Kapoor. But it will be interesting to see Hrithik in a biopic for the first time. We can’t wait for Super 30 to release on November 23, 2018.
