Anand Kumar, the inspiration for Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 character had once said ‘no’ to Anand Mahindra.
And the reason for it has now been revealed to us courtesy an interview the former recently gave to PTI.
While speaking about the allegation of taking cuts from coaching centres which were levelled against him, Anand Kumar had said,
"There are people who are talking negatively about me. I do not take any grant or donation from anyone. Our Prime Minister, business tycoons like Mukesh Ambani or Anand Mahindra have offered donation but I haven’t accepted anything. I meet everyone but I do not take money from anyone." - Anand Kumar
This has now been confirmed by Anand Mahindra himself. The Mahindra boss recently posted this on Twitter.
Anand Kumar says in the article that he turned down my offer to fund his efforts. I confirm that when we met, he courteously declined my offer of financial support. I remain an admirer of how he’s changed the lives of so many. https://t.co/3Gn3V1Qdlp pic.twitter.com/fAFqYg6UtU— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) July 13, 2019
The confirmation has only deepened the respect for Anand Kumar in the hearts of these Twitteratis.
