The biopic on mathematical genius Anand Kumar, which Vikas Bahl will helm and in which Hrithik Roshan will play Anand.
This is not the first cinematic homage to a man who has dedicated himself to the education of economically-challenged students.
A few years ago, Amitabh Bachchan played a role based on Anand Kumar in Prakash Jha’s Aarakshan. Lately, the two gathered up for an episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati where Anand sat on the hot seat and walked off with a significant sum of money.
Says Amitabh fondly, “Anand is such a noble person and thus dedicated to his oeuvre.
In Prakash Jha’s Aarakshan my character was rooted on by him.” Apparently, Anand Kumar’s tryst with the KBC host will make a component of the biopic that Bahl is helming.
