Super 30, a familiar name to IITians is soon going to establish its identity at the international level. The Mathematician Anand Kumar's Super 30 acclaimed for helping students of deprived section to crack the prestigious IIT entrance examination in Patna, Bihar has been featured in a film made by famous French director Pascal Plisson. The film is ready and going to hit big cinemas soon. The 90-minute film "The Big Day" and its clips are already being shown to TV and YouTube. The movie is set to be released next month. The film comprises four special stories from across the globe. One of them is on a girl, Nidhi Jha, a student of Super 30 and now studying at ISM, Dhanbad. She cracked JEE (advance) in 2014. Anand Kumar and Nidhi have been invited with their families to attend the film release in France. "It feels nice. I remember the days when Plisson and his team shot the film in Patna. It is getting released now. I feel happy for Nidhi. She worked really hard and she deserves all the accolades," said Kumar, who himself could not go to Cambridge University due to financial hardship. Nidhi is the third daughter of the poor auto-rickshaw driver in the temple city of Varanasi. Her father Sunil Kumar Jha, who was worried about the future of his daughters, could not even imagine providing them a good education with his meager earnings. However, after her Class 12, Nidhi reached Super 30, and life changed for her. The film, he said, has shown how students from under-privileged sections overcome stiff odds at Super 30 under Anand Kumar’s guidance to crack IIT. A total of 25 out of 30 students qualified in IITs from Super30 this year. In the past, too many filmmakers from different countries have made films on Super 30 already.
