In what will be a first for the Hindi film industry, Hrithik Roshan starrer Super 30 may be getting picked up by a Hollywood studio to be remade.
According to a source, “Super 30 is one of the finest subjects that has come out from India in the recent past. And with Indian stories finding worldwide acceptance, this subject too is expected to work globally," reported Asian Age.
A biopic of the prodigy Anand Kumar, Super 30 chronicles his story as an ace mathematician who took it upon himself to prepare underprivileged kids in India for the coveted IIT examinations. The struggles associated with his mission are what makes his story so compelling to watch.
Hrithik Roshan named the 'Sexiest Asian Man of the decade'
"A Hollywood major has shown interest in the subject, and writer Sanjiv Dutta is expected to pen the film in English once the casting for the central character is finalised after the studio hires the director. Anand Kumar is expected to be a part of this film too because it is based on his life," the source told Asian Age.
According to another report by a Hindi daily, a Hollywood production house is already in talks with Reliance Entertainment's Shubhashish Sircar for a possible Hollywood remake. Seems like the news may actually come to fruition soon enough.
After delivering two blockbusters back to back in 2019, War and Super 30, Hrithik Roshan is having quite the year career-wise; War managed to garner 300+ crores at the box office while Super 30 touched the 200 crore mark.
Released in July, the film also stars Mrunal Thakur, Amit Sadh, and Nandish Sandhu.
