The trailer of Hrithik Roshan starrer, 'Super 30' has been receiving wide appreciation from all across for the promising performance of the actor and the rich storyline that the film holds. Though the trailer had a massive hit release, the makers of the movie were very keen on releasing the trailer at the world’s oldest university and India’s rich heritage, the center of knowledge- Nalanda University in Bihar.
The makers of the movie believe that since the storyline of the movie is centered around the knowledge base of India where India, a superpower is the center of knowledge, having the trailer launch at Nalanda University would have brought the focus of the world to the civilisation’s first-ever University which finds its significance and heritage in the epics of history.
Sharing more, the sources said, ”We got to know that now again, Nalanda University is functional with new centers for language and education where the students are learning. We wanted to go and launch the trailer there amidst all the current students of the University. Unfortunately, the authorities of Bihar told us that they would need more time for preparations since such a big superstar would be visiting the premises. Therefore, we will now go during the time of our Super 30 campaign since we could not visit Nalanda at the start.”
Hrithik is a huge superstar and has massive popularity, deeper even in the nooks and corners of the country. Adding more, the sources revealed that Hrithik, upon knowing about the University’s significance got super excited and more so, when he read up about Nalanda. He believes that India has been a knowledge hub since the beginning of civilization and continues to be one.
The film, Super 30’s much-awaited trailer begins on an impactful opening note on proving the fact that India is a superpower and then it shows Hrithik essaying the role of the Indian mathematician, Anand Kumar who is preparing children to crack the competitive exam, IIT JEE.
A story of the triumph of spirit, the movie also features Mrunal Thakur alongside Hrithik in the trailer, which is being hailed as the "best trailer of the year".
Reliance Entertainment in association with HRX Films presents Super 30, which is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala Film, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, Phantom Films and Reliance Entertainment. A Reliance Entertainment and PVR Pictures release, the film hits the theatres on July 12, 2019.
Nalanda University was one of the first universities in the world, founded in the 5th Century BC, and reported to have been visited by the Buddha during his lifetime. At its peak, in the 7th century AD, Nalanda held some 10,000 students and 2000 teachers and was the center of knowledge for students from Persia, Greece, Indonesia to name a few. It had hostels, meditation centers, lakes and a library named ‘Dharmakunj’ with more than 90 lakh books and manuscripts, within its premises. Bakhtiyar Khilji burnt the university including the nine-storeyed library in 1193 which stayed ablaze for more than three months, considering it had so many books- which is fascinating in itself while the university was burning for a duration of more than a decade.
Developed under the patronage of the Gupta dynasty, Nalanda University was the first international residential university in the world which was functional for centuries and stays at the heart of India, even now. In 2016, the ruins were designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.
