On July 14, streaming giant Amazon Prime Video dropped the motion poster of Vidya Balan‘s much-awaited film, Shakuntala Devi. The motion poster revealed that the trailer for the upcoming film will release on July 15. The biopic of the famous mathematician will premiere on Amazon Prime. Shakuntala Devi is helmed by Anu Menon who has directed Waiting and Four More Shots Please S1 and is bankrolled by Sony Pictures Networks Productions and Abundantia Entertainment.
Vidya Balan who will be seen portraying the genius Shakuntala Devi, also took to her Instagram to share the motion poster.
“I am extremely excited to play the ‘human computer’ Shakuntala Devi on the big screen. She was truly someone who embraced her individuality, had a strong feminist voice and braved many a naysayer to reach the pinnacle of success.
But what truly fascinates me is that you wouldn’t normally associate a fun person with math…and she completely turns that perception on its head.
The movie also stars Sanya Malhotra, Jisshu Sengupta, Amit Sadh among others.
