Sanya Malhotra’s First Look as Vidya Balan’s daughter
In the poster, the actress seems almost unrecognizable with her straight, long hair and bangs. She wears a light pink jumper and blue jeans, with white chunky sneakers.
The first-look poster of Shakuntala Devi biopic was recently released by the makers. The poster shows Vidya Balan as Shakuntala Devi, donning short hair and a red saree.
Shakuntala Devi, the mathematical wizard, or ‘human-computer’ a moniker she earned, was known for her ability to make incredibly swift calculations. Shakuntala’s genius was first discovered at the age of 5 when she solved a math problem for 18-year-old students. Though she never received any formal education, her talent for numbers also earned her a place in the 1982 edition of The Guinness Book of World Records.
Directed by Anu Menon and produced by Vikram Malhotra, under the banner of Abundantia, the film is set to release in the summer of 2020.
