In a heartwarming video posted by Hrithik’s Roshan on his social media, the superstar shares the real journey behind finding the Super 30 students who featured in the film and to say the least, it’s overwhelming and endearing at the same time! In a winning move, the casting for the students of Super 30 was done originally in Bihar, where the film is actually based. Picked from the most random pockets of the state of Bihar, the team of Super 30 organized various workshops, and levels of it, to first collect a batch of potential students and then students kept clearing levels and were filtered till they reached the batch of super 30.
The video has students talking about their journey wherein they had heard that these auditions kept happening but had never materialized for anyone before but this time, it did for them. It was a dream come true for them as they stepped out of Bihar and came to Mumbai for the first time and met Hrithik Roshan. They were awe-inspired as the superstar came and met them and did workshops with them to form the kind of chemistry the film required as Anand Kumar, which Hrithik Roshan plays in the movie, is very close to his students.
The students also shared how motivating Hrithik Roshan was as he always made eye contact which gave them courage. The students were trained and prepared for the shoot of the film and most of them were facing the camera for the first time and it certainly was an exhilarating experience for them.
These students are the most innocent of the lot and were starry-eyed as they shot with such a huge star for the first time. They were nervous, they were excited and most of all, totally geared up for playing their parts with utmost sincerity. They also shared how they actually had problems speaking in English, in real life which forms a huge obstacle in the film for the students as they lack the confidence to sit for an entrance exam and deal with a humiliating comparison with privileged kids from privileged backgrounds.
The video also has Mrunal Thakur, who is paired opposite Hrithik Roshan in the film, praising the kids for their confidence. Their evident innocence was intact throughout the journey of Super 30 and we can see how tears rolled down their cheeks as the schedule came to an end and the world gets ready to witness the brilliance of the marvelous Super 30!
The film has been running successfully at the box-office not just across cities within our nation but has crossed boundaries and received love and appreciation overseas too. The numbers have crossed a whopping 100 crores on the 12th day, as the audience takes to the theatres weekdays and weekends alike.
