Anand Kumar’s Super 30 programme has witnessed numerous controversies ever since it was announced that a film will be made on it starring Hrithik Roshan. Before the film had released, there were numerous negative stories on the programme, even Super 30’s co-founder IPS Officer Abhayanand sharing some of the concerns of some of the unhappy students and parents. Later, as the film was gearing up for release, director Vikas Bahl being accused of sexual harassment threatened to leave the film in the lurch for a while, before delays and release date changes added to more chaos.
However, the movie rid itself of all the controversies when it finally released, earning critical acclaim and going on to become a success at the box office. As the Super 30 programme received further popularity since the success of the film, some more untoward instances are also being witnessed. The latest has been that fraudsters have been trying to dupe students in the name of Super 30.
Kumar on Tuesday took to Twitter to post a clarification. The educationist shared that people with ‘no identity’ were trying to cash in the popularity of the education initiative. He claimed people were trying to dupe innocent students by charging money.
The mathematician clarified that Super 30 team did not take donations, doesn’t have any offline or online branches. Kumar also added that they have never advertised about admissions.

For the unversed, the Super 30 programme, launched in Bihar, over 15 years ago, provides training to 30 underprivileged students for the IIT-JEE exam.
Hrithik was among the nominees of this year’s awards for his performance in Super 30, and won the Best Actor award at the Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival. The film also received tax-free status in numerous states, among most seen in recent times. The film went on to earn over Rs 125 crore at the box office.
