With Hrithik Roshan in the lead role, the movie Super 30 is about the life of mathematician Anand Kumar and his humble training institute in Patna, where he not only trained underprivileged but capable children to succeed in the IIT entrance examinations, but also prepared them to overcome inhibitions with regards to higher studies in large institutes. Yesterday’s screening of the film Super 30 was organized with an objective to motivate the school going children from slums to fight against all odds, overcome their reservations and emerge successful in their academic endeavors.  Saurabh Varma, Chief Marketing Officer – INOX Leisure Ltd said, “Super 30 has a phenomenally inspiring story line which revolves around highly capable children who could not afford expensive academic training to fulfil their dreams of higher studies and professional ambitions. While the movie has been a commercial success with huge footfalls, we at INOX felt that the movie must be shown to the ones, who really deserve to get inspired by the story. Angel Xpress Foundation are playing a huge role by inviting numerous Anand Kumars from the society to spare their time for inspiring thousands of slum kids in their academic endeavors. We are privileged on conducting the special screening of this wonderful movie for the kids. We want to thank Reliance Entertainment for partnering with us for this special screening.”

After watching the movie Super 30, most of them were extremely moved and believed that they were playing the role of Anand Kumar in the lives of these slum children and they too shall watch the movie. That is when we took the decision of taking maximum kids of AXF for the movie. We are extremely thankful to Reliance Entertainment and INOX for giving us a chance to enjoy this movie together. We invite the socially conscious Mumbaikars to come forward and join our mission.”
