The Picture Which Sparked Off Rumors

A Challenging Role For Hrithik
An insider told HT, "The film will show not just what the world knows about Anand, but also his intriguing back story. It will be interesting to see Hrithik get into the skin of this character as it is also very different from what we have seen the actor do on screen before."
What The Real Man Has To Say
When contacted by HT, Anand Kumar admitted that when makers first approached him with the idea of making a film on his life, he was "quite excited". He said, "I can totally trust Vikas Bahl with my life's story as I feel he can put out my story in the best way possible."
He Is Very Happy About Hrithik Playing Him On Screen
Kumar added, "I am very happy because he is the best choice for the role. I have seen his work and the kind of versatility and range that he exhibits as an actor is very strong. I am a rooted guy so I feel some level of emotional quotient is required to live my life on screen. I have seen that in Hrithik - on and off screen. I have full faith in his capabilities."
