The daily’s report also quoted Kumar saying, "All the stories from Bihar are about fraud and robbery. This is a story which will bring prestige to Bihar. The world will know that in Bihar, we have people who, despite difficulties reach the top."

The film revolves around the real-life story of Anand, played by Hrithik, who is an educationist who tutors children from the underprivileged sections of society under his Super 30 programme. His non-profit coaching centre grants free admission to 30 students and trains them to crack the IIT-JEE examination every year. Super 30 rose to nationwide fame in 2010 after all 30 of Mr Kumar's students cracked the entrance exam, drawing attention from foreign media as well.

Directed by Vikas Bahl and produced by Reliance Entertainment and Phantom Films, the film also stars Mrunal Thakur, Amit Sadh, and Nandish Sandhu in prominent roles. Even though the film opened to mixed reviews, it has been performing well at the box office, crossing the Rs 50.76 crore mark over its opening weekend.
