“The boatman had the exact same life that I have” – Hrithik Roshan shares an anecdote from the shoot days of Super 30

Hrithik Roshan, who has been receiving all the appreciation from audiences for his promising portrayal in the trailer of Super 30, has shared a video that gives away a very interesting insight from the days of his shoot in Benaras for his upcoming film.

“The boatman had the exact same life that I have" - Hrithik Roshan shares an anecdote from the shoot days of Super 30

Sharing the video on his social media handle, Hrithik posted, “A chance conversation with a local boatman in banaras had me contemplating. Shared the thoughts with my boys over dinner. I could see that it made them think. Learnt a little and taught a little. Was a good day for dad”.

Hrithik was shooting in Benaras when he had met the 69-year-old boat rower. While waiting on the sets, he started interacting with the person and suddenly, realized that the boatman was living the exact same life as him. During the conversation, the boatman shared how he has two sons, same as Hrithik. Further, the actor even realized that both of them share similar kinds of fears, struggles, and lives. More so, overwhelmed by the interaction, Hrithik is so taken aback that he chose to share this lens and intersection of the two realities with the whole world.

Hrithik shared, “The boatman had the exact life that I have! As in he had two sons just like me. His fears, his concerns, his joy whatever feelings his brain was experiencing at that point of time was exactly what my brain was experiencing if not exactly the same. At that point in time, I felt we were exactly the same. The only difference in our experiences is, his is on a boat and mine is on a stage”.

The actor has been garnering appreciation for his performance of the mathematician, Anand Kumar ever since the release of the first outing. The first look of the film itself had created an immense buzz amongst the audience with Hrithik’s de-glam look winning appreciation from all across. Even the real students of Anand Kumar expressed their emotions on how the actor has caught the soul of Anand Kumar, their teacher.

Recently, Anand Kumar went on record to say that Hrithik has imbibed his soul in the character and not just his body. More so, from the movement of his hands to the pain in his eyes- Hrithik has captured the essence of Anand’s journey, with utmost perfection.

Feeling even closer to the real students, Hrithik Roshan recently wished Anand Kumar’s Super 30 students who passed with flying colours in IIT entrance on his twitter handle. While 18 students cleared the IIT entrance, Hrithik has shown a keen interest in personally meeting the batch of Super 30 and wish them in person. The actor has gotten in touch with Anand Kumar and is making sure, he meets them.

Reliance Entertainment in association with HRX Films presents Super 30, which is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala Film, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, Phantom Films and Reliance Entertainment. A Reliance Entertainment and PVR Pictures release, the film hits the theatres on July 12, 2019.
