Hrithik took to Twitter to thank the CM, saying "it gives me immense happiness and fills me with pride to be bestowed with this honour."

The Vikas Bahl-directed movie is based on the life of educationist Anand Kumar who runs coaching classes for IIT-JEE aspirants. Kumar went from tutoring rich children in a top coaching center to opening an institute of his own in order to teach the underprivileged children.

The decision came after the famed mathematician Anand Kumar met the Maharashtra CM. He then took to Twitter to announce the decision. He said Fadnavis congratulated him during a formal meeting, thanking him from "the core of his heart."

The film which opened to mixed reviews has performed remarkably well in its first two weeks and continued its winning streak at the box office by crossing Rs 125 cr in its third week.

Produced by Reliance Entertainment and Phantom Films, the film also stars Mrunal Thakur, Amit Sadh, and Nandish Sandhu in pivotal roles.
