Hrithik, who is super elated with the response, said during one of his recent interviews that it reminded him of Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai's success.
"Yes, there is a feeling of satisfaction and of immense happiness. The emotions are similar to what I had felt back then," he added.
To recall, Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai, a 2000 release, had earned a stunning Rs. 80cr.
"Box-office collections do have some sort of importance, as they indicate that the audiences have accepted your work and connected to it in some way. It is always a great feeling when you are applauded for your work," Hrithik told Hindustan Times.
Meanwhile, Super 30 has been declared tax-free in Bihar and Rajasthan.
Praising it, Rajasthan CM called Super 30 "an inspiring movie of recent times" and an "excellent example of will power and determination."
To note, exemption of entertainment tax implies that the audience will be able to purchase tax-free tickets to watch the film.
Expressing his gratitude, Hrithik thanked both the CMs on Twitter.
Super 30 chronicled the life of mathematician Anand Kumar, who initiated the educational program Super 30 to teach 30 underprivileged students and prepare them for JEE.
Apart from Hrithik, it also starred Pankaj Tripathi, Mrunal Thakur in pivotal roles.
Moreover, it marked the Bollywood debut of Nandish Sandhu, who played Hrithik's brother in the movie.
The movie is the last production of Phantom Films.
