Biju Mathew, who wrote the book ‘Super 30’ on mathematician Anand Kumar has said after watching shots of the film with Anand Kumar and Director Vikas Bahl that the film will be immensely gripping.

“It is basically a story of Anand Kumar’s journey since childhood, when he lost his brother and later his father. The death of a bread-earner can derail any family, and the same happened with him. But he did not give up and started eking out a living by giving private tuition, which later culminated into coaching and then ‘Super 30’ added Mathew
