Super 30 Box Office (Overseas): Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 is pulling in some amazing business despite the slow start on an opening day. Apart from India, the movie has managed to bring in decent numbers from the overseas market in its first two days.
Super 30 has accumulated a collection of approx 11.60 crores in its first two days and is expected to add some good numbers on day 3 i.e. Sunday.
Directed by Vikas Bahl, Super 30 is based on the life of an Indian educationalist and Mathematician Anand Kumar, who coaches underprivileged students for IIT-JEE entrance examinations. The Movie features Hrithik Roshan in a titular role.
The film chronicles Anand Kumar’s incredible life, starting at a very young age, and his battle against India’s flawed and corrupt education system. A brilliant student, Anand Kumar, used to regularly travel six hours by train from Patna to Varanasi, to access study materials not available in his hometown.
In 1994, at the age of 21, Kumar secured admission to the prestigious University of Cambridge, but could not make it because he did not have the funds to travel to the UK. After his father’s death, despite being a brilliant mathematician, Anand was compelled to sell “papad” on the streets to make ends meet.
Determined that other brilliant but economically backward children like him do not face such travails, Anand Kumar initiated his Super 30 educational programme in 2002. Under the programme he picked 30 deserving but underprivileged students for the IIT-JEE, whom he would then coach free of cost every year.
