Anand Kumar took to facebook to share his thoughts and pics about meeting Hrithik Roshan. He wrote, “Just returned to Patna from Mumbai. But really I can’t forget my meeting yesterday with Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan.

Thanks Hrithik ji, thanks a lot.” Also read: Hrithik Roshan finally signs his next, will play a mathematician in Vikas Bahl’s Super 30 – read details

For the uninitiated, Anand Kumar is an Indian mathematician from Bihar, who started the Super 30 program in Patna fifteen years back (2002). Though Kumar had studied in a Hindi Medium government school, he was fantastic in mathematics. And hence, he started the program with an aim to coach the economically backward students for IIT-JEE. But that’s not it! Apart from tutoring, his institute – Ramanujan School of Mathematics would conduct an examination, select the top 30 students, groom them for the entrance exam and even provide them a good accommodation for a year. Anand came up with the idea for such a program after he was approached by a couple of underprivileged students who wanted to prepare for IIT-JEE but couldn’t afford to pay the tuition fee.
