Hrithik Roshan-starrer Super 30, which is based on the life of Anand Kumar, the founder of the Super 30 programme, has been made tax-free by the Bihar government.
The Patna-based educationist feels the move will help more people to watch the film.
Super 30 addresses and acknowledges the importance of teachers in the building and strengthening of society.

Anand, who had launched the Super 30 programme for underprivileged IIT-JEE aspirants, shared the news on social media on Monday.
“Thanks a lot to CM Nitish Kumarji and Deputy CM Sushil Kumar Modiji making ‘Super 30’ tax-free. It will help more and more people see the film @iHrithik @RelianceEnt @NGEMovies @Shibasishsarkar #super30,” Anand tweeted.
Anand Kumar recently revealed that he is suffering from brain tumour.
Kumar, whose life is the subject of the new Hrithik Roshan-starrer “Super 30”, has opened up about his battle with acoustic neuroma, a non-cancerous tumour.
In an interview with a wire agency, Kumar said that trouble began in 2014, when he was “unable to hear” in his right ear. Tests revealed nearly 90 per cent of his hearing ability in the ear had been destroyed.
Kumar then got himself checked at Delhi’s Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital. “They told me I had no issues with my ear. Instead a tumour had developed in the nerve that runs from ear to brain,” he recalled.
