Hrithik Roshan plays mathematician Anand Kumar in 'Super 30'. The first look of the project garners a lot of enthusiasm and anticipation on Twitter.
The first look of Hrithik Roshan as Anand Kumar in the biopic of the ‘Super 30’ programme founder is out.
It is unlike any of Hrithik’s previous looks and quite similar to Anand Kumar IRL. Phantom Films, which is producing ‘Super 30′, shared the first look on Tuesday. “From the first page in Benares. Hrithik Roshan as Anand Kumar,” the picture has the caption. Hrithik, dressed in a simple shirt with an unkempt beard and hair, can be seen beaming in the first look of Super 30. Fans of Hrithik Roshan are super-thrilled. “What a look, awesome look, can’t wait to see and celebrate,” read one comment.
