By now, he has shot at mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions — In­dian as well as in­ter­na­tional — for his films. But last month, ac­tor Hrithik Roshan had an ex­tremely spe­cial tryst with an iconic place: Ba­naras Hindu Uni­ver­sity (BHU), Ut­tar Pradesh, when he shot for his next film, Su­per 30, at the cam­pus. This is pos­si­bly the first time that the fa­mous uni­ver­sity opened its doors for the shooting of a Hindi film. “Yes, it’s true. Not many are aware but Hrithik shot quite ex­ten­sively in­side the BHU cam­pus,” says an in­sider close to the film’s unit. In­ci­den­tally, the star wrapped up shooting for Vikas Bahl’s di­rec­to­rial ven­ture in Varanasi it­self. “But what re­mains ex­tremely spe­cial is the fact that Hrithik and the team shot at BHU. The team shot in the ex­pan­sive li­brary of the uni­ver­sity for three-four days,” adds the in­sider. As for the choice of lo­ca­tion, the in­sider says, “Mak­ers were al­ways clear that they wanted to shoot in­side the uni­ver­sity cam­pus, since it’s one of the most iconic and old ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tutes in In­dia.” This was the sec­ond time that Hrithik has shot for Su­per 30 in Varanasi. “The film’s shooting had also kicked off in Varanasi. Un­like last time, this time around, Hrithik sported a dif­fer­ent and clean-shaven look,” says the in­sider. The film has Hrithik play­ing math­e­mat­ics ge­nius Anand Ku­mar.
