Sharing details of the evening, Hrithik said in a statement that Pinky Roshan, who never got a chance to meet Anand Kumar before, finally interacted with him: "It was a delightful evening. My mother has watched super 30 nine times in the theatres but never got the chance to meet Anand sir and his brother Pranav personally. Yesterday, we all sat and reminisced about the tough journey of Super 30 with smiles and laughter," reported news agency IANS.
Cherishing memories from the film's sets, Hrithik added: "Incidents and interactions that were devastating while shooting today seemed to make us laugh in victory. Good conversations over a good meal is the best way to celebrate anything and that's what we did yesterday."
Meanwhile, Anand Kumar shared his experience of getting to know Hrithik Roshan as a person: "I am very grateful for Hrithik Roshan and the whole team of Super 30 for bringing this story to the public. He is as amazing as a person as he is an actor, and I wouldn't have anyone else to play the role. After that, seeing him in War was mesmerising. The way he switched roles was shocking to say the least."
Super 30 is based on the real-life story of Anand Kumar, who coaches a batch of 30 students every year to prep them for the annual IIT entrance exams. Super 30, which released in July, is one of the highest grossing Hindi films of 2019.
