Just before the release of Super 30, Anand Kumar revealed something shocking about himself.
In an interview with a leading daily, Anand:
“The film writer’s wanted that I permit for the film as quickly as possible. You have no idea of life and death, so I wanted this biopic to be made while I am alive.”
“In 2014, my situation was such that I was unable to hear from my right ear. I underwent a lot of treatments in Patna and it was after some tests that I came to know that 80-90 percent of the hearing ability of my right ear has been destroyed.”
“Then I checked into Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, Delhi and the doctors performed rigorous investigation and did a number of tests. They then called me and told that I had no issues in my ear instead a tumor had been developed in the nerve which runs from ear to brain. And as soon I got to know this, as I lost consciousness.”
About the movie he said:
“I made sure that till the time I am alive, my journey should be narrated in a right manner. So for that, I read the script 13 times so that nothing goes wrong.”
For those who don’t know, Super 30 is a story about a teacher that created the history but was never written down for the people to read. It’s about an intelligent man Anand Kumar who never lost the hope of his dream. A dream of preparing 30 underprivileged kids per year for IIT for free.
