The biopic on Bihar’s mathematical genius Anand Kumar is not the first cinematic homage to a man who has devoted himself to the education of economically-challenged students. Notably, Hrithik Roshan will play Anand in the upcoming biopic helmed by Vikas Bahl.

Years ago, megastar Amitabh Bachchan also played a character based on Kumar in Prakash Jha’s Aarakshan. Recently, the two met for an episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati and Anand won a considerable amount of money.

“Anand is such a noble soul and so committed to his work. In Prakash  Jha’s Aarakshan my character was  inspired by him,” said Bachchan.
