Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan's larger-than-life appearances in films have mesmerized the audience over years, however, the actor recently revealed that he considers his role in 'Super 30' as Anand Kumar is his best superhero appearance. During a recent exclusive interaction with Republic Media Network, the actor said that he is very much inspired by Indian mathematician Anand Kumar, whom he portrayed on-screen.
"I did several superheroes before, played larger than life roles, but this is the real superhero role I did. I portrayed Anand ji on-screen." the actor said.
Speaking about the ways in which Anand Kumar is Superhero for him, the 'Krrish' actor said, "Anand Sir is cooler than Aryan in 'Dhoom 2'. He is witty, he is intelligent, he has wisdom, he is so much fun, he is cool. The kind of clarity he has in his mind is phenomenal."
Revealing how it was easier for him to catch up with Bihar's Hindi accent because of Anand, Hrithik said: "He has a larger than life figure. The way I have been inspired due to his life is beyond what I can express. Learning the language was easy because I was so inspired that in my every cell I could feel that. It was like souls met. So it became easy for me. My hard work was physical but the passion the inspiration was important that I got from him - after meeting him. I sometimes feel in my past life I must have been a Bihari. The mentality that Bihar is a bad place will change after this movie."
The actor further went on to praise Anand Kumar's equation with his brother Pranav Kumar and said that he wants his sons to become like them.
"I have two sons, I believe if they grow up to have this kind of love and respect for each other, my work is done," he said.
Taking about the concept of Super 30, he said: " Everyone has the capability and once a person becomes successful, they don't share their ideas, they keep ita secret. This mentality needs to change, we must share. There is a dialogue in the movie that 'Gyaan batne se duguna ho jata hai'."
'Super 30' directed by Vikas Bahl chronicles the life story of Anand Kumar. The mathematical genius based in Bihar opens an institute to teach the underprivileged children. Under the 'Super 30' initiative, Anand trained Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) aspirants crack the entrance exam to the prestigious institutes.
