Hrithik Roshan shared the posters of Super 30 a few months ago, which received a wonderful response from the audience an as well as Anand Kumar (the man he will be seen playing on screen). Anand Kumar reviewed Hrithik's look in the film and told news agency PTI: "I was delighted and pleasantly surprised to see the first look wherein Hrithik sports a rugged, bearded look. I had been told that at present the shooting was being done of my college days. I took out an old photograph of mine, of the time when I was studying at Patna University. I found the resemblance to be uncanny."
