Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 won't be treated as biopic anymore. Here's why
After Super 30 founder is accused of fraud, makers of Hrithik Roshan-starrer likely to change film's tone to fiction
In the wake of reports alleging that Anand Kumar has made misleading claims about his foundation Super 30, the makers of the Hrithik Roshan-starrer find themselves in a spot. With their muse in the eye of a storm, it has been heard that director Vikas Bahl, producers Sajid Nadiadwala and Madhu Mantena have decided to not treat the film as a biopic, but the story of a common man who succeeds against all odds.
An insider reveals, "Since the film is in post-production, they are considering removing all references to Anand. While it will revolve around a Math whiz whose coaching institute becomes successful, they will categorically not call it a biopic anymore." For the uninitiated, Kumar claimed that 26 out of his 30 students cleared the IIT JEE exam this year.
However, Dainik Jagran, in an expose, reported how several students, who he claimed were products of Super 30, belonged to other coaching institutes. The reports also alleged that students seeking admission to Super 30 would get asked to join Ramanujan School of Mathematics, an institute that allegedly earns Kumar Rs 1 crore annually. Bahl, Mantena and Nadiadwala remained unavailable for comment.
