Hrithik expressed his wish to meet the students on the auspicious day, as it will be celebrated at Anand’s house. He will meet all the students of the mathematical genius, and spend the day having lunch with him, his family and pupils. The actor lived that life while shooting the film and wants to relive those memories. Visiting Patna is also his way of paying a tribute to the teachers.”
