There were initial reports of Tiger Shroff and Siddharth Malhotra being approached for the parallel lead in Super 30 alongside Hrithik as his brother to fit into shoes of Pranav Kumar who sacrificed his own dreams to make his brother’s dream come true. The makers wanted someone who could bring on a great chemistry of brotherhood on screen with Hrithik, but this time the makers have zeroed down to launch a newcomer in the industry with this film instead of going in for a star. So finally Hrithik seems to have found his onscreen brother in Nandish Singh who is making his debut in Bollywood with this grand platform and we are sure that this ‘Dada Saheb Phalke award winner’ after tasting superstardom on small screen with his all-time cult show ‘Uttaran’ is now set to create ripples in the film industry with his dashing looks and acting skills!!
Super 30 is a much-awaited film as it is based on the real-life junctures of Anand Kumar and Pranav Kumar who are reputed to cater free coaching to poor meritorious students for IIT entrance exam. Not many know that Super 30 is not just a biopic of the maths genius Anand Kumar but his younger brother Pranav Kumar too who revealed certain facts in his last interview given to a daily. Reportedly Pranav Kumar had declined to give NOC for the film until the makers didn’t find someone who could hold his own in front of Hrithik who is essaying his ‘bade bhaiya’s’ role in the film, but when Pranav met Nandish he immediately gave a head’s up and was extremely impressed by his charm. According to him, post lengthy discussions Pranav Kumar, the film director- Vikas Bahl and Casting director- Mukesh Chabbra, found Nandish to be appropriate for the role.
Nandish being full of zeal, the trio thought that the actor would flawlessly step into Pranav’s shoes. It would be great to see a newcomer essaying a biopic role in his very first film which surely is quite challenging for a debutant. The film shows the journey of these 2 inseparable brothers in establishing the ‘Super 30’ educational program. The sacrifices Pranav has sailed through in his real life to make his brother’s dream come true, the love and bonding the 2 share in real life shall be painted on the big screen by Vikas Bahl which is surely to melt the audience with its high emotional quotient.
As per close sources, “Nandish has started shooting for the film in Rajasthan last week with Hrithik featuring as Anand. Both Hrithik and Nandish gel on the sets as if they are brothers in real life. This off-screen chemistry will surely reflect onscreen”
