To this tweet, the 'reel' Anand Kumar Hrithik Roshan wrote, "This is amazing Anand Sir. Thank you CM Nitish Kumar and Deputy CM Sushil Kumar Modi for this."
Directed by Vikas Bahl, Super 30 received mixed reviews from the critics and audience. Speaking about its box office collection, the film collected Rs 50.76 crore in three days.
Talking about Hrithik Roshan playing him on the big screen, Anand Kumar was earlier quoted as saying, "Sanjeev Dutta (writer) wrote this story nine years ago but no one was ready to make a film on it. Two years ago, many producers and directors came with offers. I met everyone but I hadn't seen a person as curious and excited like Hrithik Roshan. He is a very good actor and he said: 'The movie is very tough. Give me at least a year to get into your skin and I will do it perfectly'. Right from his dialect to facial expressions, I was convinced that he (Hrithik Roshan) will do the best job."
