"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", Anand Kumar told news agency PTI.
He also shared the reaction of his family and said, "I showed my photograph to my family members and asked them to compare it with Hrithik's and their observation was similar to mine."
Anand Kumar is confident that the biopic would be successful and revealed that a part of it will also be shot in Patna. "The movie is at present being shot in Varanasi, where I have spent a considerable part of my early life. I have been told that the crew will visit Patna too for shooting. Looking at the hard work and dedication involved in the project, I am confident it will turn out to be a biopic that does full justice to the theme and the ambience," he told PTI. Anand Kumar also appreciated Hrithik and team Super 30's efforts.
"Hrithik deserves kudos for mustering the courage to appear in a de-glamourised look. He has also hired a speech trainer from Bhagalpur to get the Bihari accent right. Hats off to the star and the entire unit", Anand Kumar added.
Under the Super 30 programmed, Anand Kumar tutors 30 students from economically weak background for IIT-JEE entrance exam.
