Hrithik Roshan, Mrunal Thakur shoot at Ganga banks for ‘Super 30’

The shooting of ‘Super 30’ began and a new picture from the location was unearthed which shows Hrithik Roshan and ‘Kumkum Bhagya’ actress Mrunal Thakur shooting on the banks of river Ganga.

The shoot started around noon with a pooja sequence on the banks of Ganga, following which Hrithik and Mrunal filmed at Ramnagar Fort. A part of the fort has allegedly been converted to look like a coaching institute for the shoot.

Talking about the film, ‘Super 30’ is inspired from Patna-based mathematician Anand Kumar who had started an initiative to coach 30 under-privileged but meritorious students who could not afford to bear the expense of the coaching classes for engineering aspirating students for IIT.

He not only provided study materials and lodging to the JEE aspiring students for a year but his mother, Jayanti Devi also cooked meals for them. In the first year, 18 out of 30 students cracked the exams. Two years later it was 22 and 28 cleared the exam in 2006. In 2008 and 2009, all the 30 cracked the entrance exam. Currently, Anand Kumar’s Ramanujan School of Mathematics is among the four most ground-breaking schools in the world.

Reportedly, Hrithik Roshan will shoot in Varanasi, Patna and Bhopal for the film. Hrithik started work on the project on January 22. The actor tweeted, “On the auspicious day of Saraswati Puja and Basant Panchami, I am beginning my journey of Super 30 where I am playing a teacher for the first time. May the Goddess of learning bless this effort.” Earlier while talking about Hrithik playing his role. 

Anand had said, “I am happy that Hrithik will play me because he is the best choice for the role. His dedication towards his work and the kind of versatility he exhibits as an actor is very inspiring. Being a rooted and passionate person myself, I feel that he will bring an emotional depth to my life on screen. I am excited to see Hrithik as Anand Kumar essaying my emotional journey. I totally trust Vikas with my story and I am confident that he will make a sensible and heartfelt film about me and what I strive to do.”

The hunt for the leading lady is still on. ‘Super 30’ is slated to release on January 25, 2019.
