The main man behind Hrithik Roshan starrer Super 30, the ace mathematician Anand Kumar will be honored with the prestigious Mahaveer Award for 2019, presented by the Bhagwan Mahavir Trust.

Anand is presently in the news for the massive success of the biopic on his life ‘Super 30’ starring Hrithik Roshan and Mrunal Thakur, and this honorable nomination is undeniably yet another feather added to his hat.

The ace mathematician will be honored with the 21st Mahaveer Award, which carries Rs.10,00,000 and a citation.

The teacher, Kumar drafts 30 educationally bright yet underprivileged students into his coaching program each year free of cost giving them a shot at the prestigious, highly competitive, and daunting entry exam for the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs).

Reacting to the same, Anand said, “Is a great honour that and it only goes on to further increase my responsibility to continue working for the students from the underprivileged sections of the society. I am really thankful to the selection committee for the award for finding me worthy of the honor”.

Sunil Anand Jain of the Mahaveer foundation said the selection of Anand Kumar was made due to his pioneering initiative, which has helped students from the poorest sections of the society successfully chase their IIT dream year after year.

Post the success of Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Super30’, Anand has started receiving the recognition that he should have received much before. The film which went to become a humongous success not only highlighted what Anand does but also the struggles he had to face to do this noble deed.
