Shakuntala Devi, also known as the Indian mental calculator has become a household name in the country since many years. The Human-Computer earned a name in The Guinness Book of World Record 1982 edition.
The ever-versatile Vidya Balan is playing the maths wizard in the upcoming biopic, and the trailer says it all. For someone who doesn’t like maths, watching the trailer of Shakuntala Devi was a different ballgame together. The mathematician marvel gets all the appreciation in the world wherever she goes, because of her ability to be able to solve maths problems in the blink of an eye.
However, looks like her daughter, played by Sanya Malhotra, is not charmed by her ways at least. The trailer shows that behind every genius also lies a human being who struggles hard enough to be able to wear all hats at once.
You’ll be bowled over by the effortless way, Vidya Balan plays the part, making it all the more exciting to watch the movie.
