The biopic on mathematical genius Anand Kumar, which Vikas Bahl will helm and in which Hrithik Roshan will play Anand, is not the first cinematic homage to  a man who has dedicated himself  to the education of economically-challenged students.

A few years ago, Amitabh Bachchan played a character based on Anand Kumar in Prakash Jha’s Aarakshan. Recently, the two met up for an episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati where Anand sat on the hot seat and walked away with a substantial amount of money. 

Says Amitabh fondly, “Anand is such a noble soul and so committed to his work. In Prakash  Jha’s Aarakshan my character was  inspired by him.” Apparently, Anand Kumar’s tryst with the KBC host will form  a part of  the biopic that Bahl is helming.
