A movie on the life of the extraordinary Shakuntala Devi popularly known as the human computer is something that everyone is looking forward to. The news of Vidya Balan playing the mental calculator on screen is a cause of celebration in itself because we know that Vidya will and can do justice to it.
Earlier this month, the first look poster of the movie was released and it’s already got the internet talking.
What’s more? Sanya Malhotra will be joining the cast of the movie as Anupama Banerji aka Shakuntala Devi’s daughter. The actress had posted the announcement on Instagram yesterday.
We can’t wait to see Vidya and Sanya on screen together because we’re sure it’s going to be amazing. Vidya is one of the best actresses we have in the country and Sanya is one of the most promising talents we have.
I am very excited to play the iconic Shakuntala Devi’s daughter – Anupama Banerji. Everyone knows the achievements of the Math genius Shakuntala Devi. I’m thrilled to bring onscreen this dynamic mother-daughter relationship and equally thrilled to work with Vidya Balan.
Way to go, Sanya! We’re sure you’ll be fantastic on this project.
Earlier when asked about the project, Vidya had said how excited she was for it not just because Shakuntala Devi was a brilliant woman but she also had a wacky side to her. We can’t wait to find out!
