IIT students threaten to file suit against Hrithik Roshan's Super 30

Four IIT-Guwahati students have accused the film of perpetuating a 'wrong perception' of Anand Kumar, the controversial educationist and founder of the Super 30 programme

Published: 15th June 2019

Four IIT-Guwahati students are planning to initiate a fresh suit to stall the release of Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30. In September last year, the students — identified as Avinash Baro, Bikash Das, Monjit Doley and Dhaniram Taw in reports — had accused mathematician Anand Kumar, founder of the Super 30 education programme, of being a fraud.

They had claimed Patna-based Anand fakes the results of his programme and filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) demanding him to disclose the names of the students he’d helped clear IIT exams. Anand, who is portrayed in the film by Hrithik, is yet to respond fully to the litigation, it is claimed.

Positing that the lawsuit is still on, Amit Goyal, the legal counsel of the IIT-G students, has questioned the release of the biopic in the interim. While admitting ignorance of the full facts presented in the story, the lawyer has claimed that the trailer paints a celebratory image of Anand, thereby perpetuating a ‘wrong perception’ of the educationist. Reliance Entertainment, co-producers of the film, are yet to respond to the reports.

Directed by Vikas Bahl, Super 30 is scheduled to release on July 12. The film also stars Mrunal Thakur, Aditya Shrivastava, and Pankaj Tripathi.
