Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 is set to hit the big screen tomorrow, July 12. The film is based on the life of Patna-based mathematician Anand Kumar, who taught underprivileged kids for free and helped them crack the IIT entrance exam.
A day before the film’s release, a devastating news has come up. Anand Kumar has recently revealed that he is suffering from acoustic neuroma, a brain tumour.
In an interview with ANI, Anand revealed that he was in a hurry to get his biopic made as there is no certainty to his life. He said, “The film writer’s wanted that I permit for the film as quickly as possible. You have no idea of life and death, so I wanted this biopic to be made while I am alive.”
He added, “In 2014, my situation was such that I was unable to hear from my right ear. I underwent a lot of treatments in Patna and it was after some tests that I came to know that 80-90 per cent of the hearing ability of my right ear has been destroyed.”
He went on to say, “Then I checked into Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, Delhi and the doctors performed rigorous investigation and did a number of tests. They then called me and told that I had no issues in my ear instead a tumour had been developed in the nerve which runs from ear to brain. And as soon I got to know this, as I lost consciousness.”
Though Anand has been suffering from brain tumour, he ensured that the script of the film remains authentic to his life. He said, “I made sure that till the time I am alive, my journey should be narrated in a right manner. So for that I read the script 13 times so that nothing goes wrong.” He would often argue with Vikas Bahl for the script changes.
“I understand that you have to keep certain things to entertain the audience in a film, but you should always show certain incidents exactly like they happened to maintain the authenticity of the story. So we had certain heated discussions on the script but, in the end, we finalised the script after changing it 12 times,” he said.
