Bollywood’s Greek God Hrithik Roshan has kicked off the first schedule of his upcoming biopic ‘Super 30’ in Varanasi with a romantic sequence, trade sources said on Thursday.
Hrithik will be seen romancing TV actress Mrunal Thakur of ‘Kumkum Bhagya’ fame.
The ‘Kaabil’ star started the shoot at 1400 hrs on Tuesday with a pooja sequence on the banks of Ganga. Afterwards, Hrithik and Mrunal completed the rest of the shoot at Ramnagar fort, said the sources.
A part of the fort was converted to look like a coaching institute for the shoot, they added.
Directed by Vikas Bahl, Super 30 is a biography on the inspiring life of mathematician Anand Kumar, who is instrumental in training 30 students from humble background, every year, to crack the IIT entrance test.
Anand Kumar announced the movie recently on the social media.
Taking to microblogging site Twitter, Mr Kumar said ‘Time keeps moving. It never stops. It doesn’t tire. It keeps changing from one extreme to another, difficult to enjoy, but maintains its march taking everything in its stride. It can never be made captive or controlled, as it has its own pace. It goes on and on, changing direction as it wills.
‘Just imagine, how eight years elapsed since Sanjeev Dutta first drew the sketch of the script for the film on my life. This is how time flies, at times without giving any inkling of its pace. Just a year from now on November 23, 2018, the film will be released. I have full faith on my team. The way the entire team is engrossed in the project, working day in and day out, I am confident time will always remember this film,’ he added.
