Mrunal Thakur, famous for her TV roles in soap operas like Har Yug Mein Ayega Ek Arjun and Kumkum Bhagya, bagged the biggest role hitherto of her career when she was cast opposite Hirthik Roshan in Super 30. But if youre wondering what her role is, then allow us to spill the beans.
Mrunal plays the romantic interest of Hrithiks character, the ace mathematician Anand Kumar, and her role will be that of a classical dancer. The actress has begun prepping for her role under the tutelage of Kathak legends Pandit Birju Maharaj and Renu Sharma, and has already been practicing classical dance forms since the past couple of months. Her track is yet to be shot, and will be filmed sometime between July and August this year.
The film will have some creative liberties taken for the sake of commercialism, which is the case of any biopic the world over. However, whether Mrunals track is fictional or based on a real person is yet to be confirmed. Incidentally, this wont be her Bollywood debut as shell first be seen this year, playing the title character, in Love Sonia.
Super 30 is based on the life of the brilliant mathematician Anand Kumar, and will particularly focus on his contribution in annually coaching 30 underprivileged students free of cost for the extremely tough IIT-JEE entrance exam. Its produced by Anurag Kashyap’s Phantom Films in association with Reliance Entertainment and Sajid Nadiadwala’s Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment. Vikas Bahl of Queen fame is directing the film.
