Founder of the ‘Super 30’ program, educationist Anand Kumar from Patna, Bihar, revealed recently about his battle with brain tumor. The latest biopic in Bollywood is about him and ‘Super 30’ starring Hrithik Roshan is hitting the big screens today.
Anand Kumar opened up about is battle with acoustic neuroma – a non-cancerous tumor. He recalled his trouble began in 2014 when he experienced difficulty in hearing in his right ear. Tests revealed nearly 90 per cent of his hearing ability in this ear was destroyed.
Kumar then checked himself into the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital in Delhi. The doctors told him there was no issue with his ear, but there was a tumor growth that had developed in the nerve that runs from the ear to the brain.
Kumar wanted the biopic to be made while he was still alive and is on medication.”People will get to know the essence of my life through the biopic,” he said.
