Hrithik Roshan’s next film was to be based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar who runs a coaching academy with the name Super 30, that trains 30 selected underprivileged students free of cost to crack IIT-JEE examinations. The makers have now decided to make a fictional film instead of a biopic. See Hrithik's first look from the film.
It all started when an IPS Abhyanand, who claims to be a co-founder of Super 30, accused Anand of deceit. He, along with parents of Anand's students, have alleged that the mathematician has made several false claims to sell both his organisation and his story. Taking this into account, the makers of the film have now decided to make few changes in the story and remove any reference to Anand.
The report citing the same published in a tabloid. It reported that director Vikas Bahl and Producers, Sajid Nadiadwala and Madhu Mantena have decided to release the film as a fiction story, instead of treating the story as a biopic. This will be done to ensure smooth release of the film.
The film Super 30 will now be about a common man who succeeds against all odds and is engaged in the social cause of educating underprivileged children for free.
The source quoted in the report said: "Since the film is in post-production, they are considering removing all references to Anand. While it will revolve around a Math whiz whose coaching institute becomes successful, they will categorically not call it a biopic anymore."
When the film was announced earlier this year, Anand Kumar (the mathematician) claimed that 26 out of his 30 students have cleared the IIT-JEE 2018 exam. When he was apparently asked to show the credentials supporting his claim, he failed to do so. Anand first shot to fame on Kaun Banega Crorepati hosted by Amitabh Bachchan where he won Rs 25 lakhs.
