Taking a moment to congratulate Neetu & Nitin Chandra. The siblings who joined forces to back a film they believed in. And they made History! Here's the first ever Maithili film from Bihar to win the National Award. Keep up the good work 👏🏻 @Neetu_Chandra https://t.co/HjpdaPkW5F— Hrithik Roshan (@iHrithik) September 21, 2020
For this achievement, Roshan, who played the role of a Bihari, math genius, Anand Kumar, in his film, 'Super 30', did not leave a chance to congratulate them for this big win.
The 'War' actor took to Twitter and shared the official trailer of the film. He wrote, "Taking a moment to congratulate Neetu and Nitin Chandra. The siblings who joined forces to back a film they believed in. And they made History! Here's the first-ever Maithili film from Bihar to win the National Award. Keep up the good work."
The actor had completely transformed himself to play a Bihari in Super 30 and convincingly so. He was hugely applauded for his portrayal.
