By HT

Mumbai, Sept. 25 -- Of late, there has been a spate of rumours and speculations around the casting of the actor who will portray mathematician Anand Kumar in the latter's biopic titled Super 30. 
 
But now, HT Cafe can confirm that Hrithik Roshan has been officially signed up to play the Mathematics genius. 
 
"2017 has been great for Hrithik, so after impressing audiences as well as critics early this year as a visuallyimpaired man in Kaabil, he will start shooting for the Anand Kumar biopic within a few days. It goes without saying that makers are excited about Hrithik coming onboard for the film as he has always been their first choice," says an insider. 
 
A few days back, a photo of a meeting between Anand and Hrithik that was arranged by the makers at the latter's house also got leaked. 
 
"That meeting was intended to discuss the nitty-gritty of the film," says the insider. Helmed by Vikas Bahl, the film will showcase the life of Patnabased mathematician, Anand Kumar, who trains 30 deserving, economically backward students for the most prestigious exams of IIT each year with commendable success rate. The film will show not just what the world knows about Anand, but also his intriguing back story. It will be interesting to see Hrithik get into the skin of this character as it will be a completely new world for him since this is the first time he is doing a biopic," says the insider. 
 
When contacted, Anand admits that when makers first approached him with the idea of making a film on his life, he was "quite excited". 
 
He says, "I can totally trust Vikas Bahl with my life's story as I am confident that he will make a heartfelt film out of my story." 
 
And what about Hrithik portraying him on the big screen? "I am very happy because he is the best choice for the role. I have seen his work and the kind of versatility and range that he exhibits as an actor is very strong. I am a rooted guy so I feel some level of emotional quotient is required to live my life on screen. I have seen that in Hrithik - on and off screen. I have full faith in his capabilities," says Anand.
