Roshan shared an image with Kumar on Twitter, and saluted teachers like him on Guru Purnima.
आज गुरु पूर्णिमा के अवसर पर, एक बात दोहराना चाहूँगा, ज्ञान बांटने से और बढ़ता है । आनंद जी और उनके जैसे सभी गुरुओं… https://t.co/E0Dohxuze3— Hrithik Roshan (@iHrithik) 1563295408000
The movie is inspired by the mathematician's real life. It addresses and acknowledges the importance of teachers in building and strengthening the society. Kumar, who has been providing free coaching to IIT aspirants from humble backgrounds for close to two decades, said Roshan had brought authenticity to the biopic with his earnest portrayal.
Roshan was also requested by reporters to speak a few lines in typical Bihari accent, something he did for the movie. The actor obliged but said he had lost touch with the accent after he finished shooting the film.
The movie minted over Rs 50 crore at the box office in the opening weekend after its release on July 12.
