On the occasion of Teacher’s Day on Wednesday, actor Hrithik Roshan unveiled the first look of his upcoming film Super 30, based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar, who runs the Super 30 programme in Patna.
Hrithik took to Instagram to share the poster of the film, directed by Vikas Bahl and co-produced by Anil Ambani-backed Reliance Entertainment and Sajid Nadiadwala’s NGE Productions.
He is seen in a bearded avatar as a man who seems to be on a path to do something noble for the society. The poster’s tagline reads: “Ab raja ka beta raja Nahin Banega (Now a king’s son will no longer become a king himself)”. It suggests that the film will give a strong social message by depicting the life of Anand Kumar.
“Super 30” is about the program under which 30 students are selected each year from economically backward sections of society in Bihar and trained for Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) entrance exam. Also starring actors Amit Sadh and Mrunal Thakur, “Super 30” is slated to release on January 25, 2019.
In the last few years, Hrithik Roshan has had a long gap between two releases. While Kaabil released in January 2017, his next, Super 30, will open in cinemas only in January 2019. This means the actor won’t have a film hitting the marquee for exactly two years. While actors like Aamir Khan have shown a preference for working on one project at a time, others like Akshay Kumar believe that multiple releases a year is the right path to follow.
Now, it looks like the superstar has started working towards the goal. Says a source, “Hrithik has as many as five films lined in the next two years. That’s a marked change from his usual model. He has okayed around five projects, which are likely to be shot one after the other.”
