Hrithik Roshan starrer Super 30 is all set to release this Friday. The film is based on the life of Mathematician Anand Kumar from Bihar who transformed the lives of economically challenged students by providing low cost tuition for IIT JEE.
Now, in a recent interview, Anand Kumar made a shocking revelation that he has been diagnosed and is suffering from acoustic neuroma, a brain tumour.
Speaking about why he was in a hurry to give a nod to a biopic at such an early age, he said that there is no certainty of life and death.

Elaborating more, he further added, “It would have been the best for me if the biopic was made while I was alive- where I could see its journey and watch it myself.”
According to reports in ANI, Anand Kumar shared that it was some time back when he encountered an issue with hearing. Upon more medical examination and diagnosis, he got to know that 80 to 90 percent of his ability to hear from his right ear was disabled. With no improvement after undergoing ENT treatment, he got tired of the consistent struggle to get the right diagnosis. Later, in 2014 when he visited New Delhi’s Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, the doctors told him that there was no issue with his ear but the nerve that connects it to the brain where the tumour resides.

With acoustic neuroma in his system, the doctors told him that even if an operation is conducted, there are chances of massive complications. From the possibility of other senses like eyes also getting affected, the operation could not be performed but Anand is under constant observation where he goes for a periodic analysis to weigh the dancer every six months.
Anand also shares how his students of the batch of 2014, Super 30 students were the only ones who were aware but because of the fear of what follows, he did not want to share the news of condition with anyone. Anand shares that his daily movements stay as normal as ever but the constant pain and the struggles that come with it, are always there at their painful worst telling us at the interview to the news agency, ANI.
Despite undergoing the condition, the spirit of Anand Kumar stays unfazed and undeterred where he continues to teach students.
In Super 30, Hrithik Roshan will be seen playing the role of Anand Kumar.
Helmed by Vikas Bahl and is being produced by Phantom Films, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, and Reliance Entertainment, the film will release on July 12.
