On Tuesday, Hrithik Roshan was spotted shooting for Anand Kumar’s biopic – Super 30 in Jaipur, directed by Vikas Bahl. The actor was shooting in the scorching afternoon heat. He was seen selling papads on a bicycle, as he drove the vehicle in the villager avatar wearing a cotton shirt and brown pants. His rugged look has drove his fans crazy. He is portraying mathematician Anand Kumar in the upcoming biopic.
Talking about the biopic, Anand Kumar had said earlier in an interview with mid-day, “Both Hrithik and Vikas have kept me in the loop. They want to make the story as authentic as possible. They have taken a lot of research material from me. Vikas has promised that I will be consulted at every point during the research and writing process. I’m satisfied with the way it’s shaping up,” he says.
While he has had several takers for his biopic, Kumar is certain that Roshan is the best choice to bring his story on screen. “I understand that Hrithik cannot look like me, but that is not the point of the film. He wants to embrace the spirit of my story,” he says, adding that the actor will undergo a few months’ training before the project goes on floors.

Talking about being the subject of a Bollywood film, he says, “I was skeptical about giving out my story to anyone, but Vikas really convinced me. I could see their drive at creating something unique.”
One might suspect that his skepticism was a case of once bitten, twice shy – Anurag Basu had committed to make a film based on him, only to back out without even informing him. Reflecting on it, Kumar says, “I was hurt, but it has worked out for the best. I’m hopeful that this team will do more justice. I wanted my story to go in the right hands.”
Television actress Mrunal Thakur will be seen opposite Hrithik in this film.
