Hrithik Roshan’s film Super 30 is going strong at the box-office. The film has earned an estimated Rs 6.92 crore on Monday, taking the total collection to Rs. 57.68 crore. Directed by Vikas Bahl, the film is based on the life of Patna-based mathematician Anand Kumar, who teaches underprivileged kids for free and helps them crack the IIT entrance exam.
Released on July 12, the film is giving tough competition to Shahid Kapoor’s hit film Kabir Singh and Ayushmann Khurrana’s Article 15. The Bihar government has announced that Hrithik Roshan-starrer will run tax-free in the state from today.
Like every blockbuster these days, Super 30 was also mired in many controversies. The film’s director Vikas Bahl was accused of sexually assaulting a colleague, and then to avoid clashing at the box office with Kangana Ranaut’s film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and then Mental Hai Kya. The makers finally decided to release the film before Mental Hai Kya on July 12.
On Super 30 day, the 45-year-old actor tweeted to say, "As a child, math certainly wasn't one of my favourite subjects but as an actor love is an emotion I strongly connect with. It was the chemistry between Anand and mathematics that translates into pure romance. So, with all the love in my heart, I present Super 30 to my audience."
Apart from Hrithik Roshan, the film also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Mrunal Thakur, Aditya Srivastava, Nandish Singh Sandhu and Amit Sadh, among others.
Hrithik will next be seen with Tiger Shroff in Siddharth Anand's War. The film, which is produced by Yash Raj Films, is set to hit the screens on October 2.
