Hrithik Roshan is back in the limelight and for all the right reasons. The actor's look from his upcoming film Super 30 — on Maths genius Anand Kumar from Bihar — has been released and is already creating the right waves on social media.

Though Hrithik's role was confirmed long ago, the crew seems to be struggling to finalise other important characters. While the casting team has confirmed that fresh faces will be cast to play the characters of the students, it is yet to be confirmed who will be seen as Hrithik's wife and brother.

A report by DNA has recently claimed that Anand Kumar's brother Pranav has asked the Super 30 makers to rope in a well-known face for his character. Anand's brother Pranav also suggested that his role should be given to either Tiger Shroff or Siddharth Malhotra. Going by the plot, Pranav's character will have prominent screen space in the film.

A source close to the team said, "Pranav had told the makers that he would give them an NOC only if they get someone who is a well-known face. He was keen that Tiger or Sidharth should be approached to play Hrithik’s younger sibling on celluloid."

However, none of actors have yet been approached for the role. Earlier it was suggested that Mrunal Thakur, who shot to fame as Bulbul in Kumkum Bhagya, is being considered for the role of Anand Kumar's wife.

"They (the makers) had reservations about the length of the role, but it is an important part. It's a great thing for a new actress to begin her career with. As for Hrithik, he has never had any reservations about working with newcomers," sources added.

Watch this space for confirmations on who will play Hrithik's brother in Super 30.

Produced by Phantom Films, Super 30 is scheduled to be released Early 2019.
