Vidya Balan, who was last seen in Tumhari Sulu, has taken up challenging roles and done proper justice to them. Now, along with Mission Mangal the actress will add another iconic character to her versatile list. Vidya Balan is all set to portray the role of the mathematical wizard, astrologer, author and novelist- Shakuntala Devi.
Talking about the film a thrilled Vidya Balan said in a statement, “I am extremely excited to play the human computer, Shakuntala Devi, on the big screen. 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. I am thrilled that Vikram, who I’ve worked with on Kahaani, and his team are producing the film. Vikram (Malhotra), Anu (Menon) and I are proud to bring to life the story of one of the most inspiring women of this country.”
The film is produced by one of India’s foremost content creators, Abundantia Entertainment, led-by Vikram Malhotra. The film will be helmed by Anu Menon, director of London, Paris, New York and the much-talked-about Amazon Prime Original, Four More Shots Please!
