As per the latest news, a Hollywood studio has shown interest in taking up ‘Super 30’ for a remake.
According to a report in a leading international media house, a trade source said, “Super 30 is one of the finest subjects that has come out from India in the recent past. And with Indian stories finding worldwide acceptance, this subject too is expected to work globally. A Hollywood major has shown interest in the subject, and writer Sanjiv Dutta is expected to pen the film in English once the casting for the central character is finalised after the studio hires the director. Anand Kumar is expected to be a part of this film too because it is based on his life.”
According to another report, top Hollywood production company agents have held a special meeting with Shibashish Sarkar, CEO of Reliance entertainment, and the company that produced it on the recent Singapore and US tour. The same was confirmed by the company’s highly placed sources.
Super 30 as a movie was based on Anand Kumar, a Patna-based mathematician who ran a Super 30 program for IIT aspirants from Patna and taught them free of charge. Hrithik’s depiction brought him critical appreciation and also featured him in the ten highest grossing Bollywood films of 2019.
