In the past nine years, Patna-based mathematician Anand Kumar said that a lot of big actors and directors approached him to make a film on his life but nothing excited him until 'Super 30' came his way. Directed by Vikas Bahl and starring Hrithik Roshan as Kumar, the film has been in the making for quite some time.
The recently released trailer of Super 30 had received mixed responses on social media. Kumar, however, said that Hrithik has nailed the look and accent.
"I am a middle-class man and in my life most of the time I am sweating, giving lectures and I usually roam from one place to other, so my skin would definitely be tan. I believe Hrithik is a perfectionist. The team of Super 30 stayed with me in Patna and observed me for a few days. As far as language is concerned, we are not talking in Bhojpuri but in Magahi language. Hrithik did work a lot on getting his look and language right. He has got the exact language and (skin) tone," he told PTI.
The mathematician revealed that before approving the script of the film, he had a few conditions that the actor, director and music director will be of his choice. Kumar said that he wanted Bahl to helm his life story, after watching his 2014 directorial venture Queen.
"I watched Queen and had liked Vikas Bahl's work, that's how he came on board for this film. Then talks were on with few actors but I liked Hrithik Roshan as he was very dedicated towards the film. The passion and enthusiasm that these people had, no one had shown that earlier. I liked their approach, they wanted to tell a true story. They had given me the liberty to be a part of the process creatively," the Super 30 founder said.
Kumar's aim was to show his true story on screen and the film's team made sure it happened. "I wanted the film to be accurate and as authentic as possible and I am glad the entire team has made sure the story remains true," he added.
