The Story Of Super 30

Anand Kumar Is Elated That Hrithik Will Portray His Life On Screen
He was quoted as saying, "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."
Meanwhile, Vikas Bahl had further added, "Truth, they say, is stranger than fiction. Anand sir's life story is the most beautiful and shocking example of it.
