Vidya Balan is one of the most celebrated actors in the industry and now she is back with what she does the best. The trailer of Shakuntala Devi, starring Vidya Balan in the titular role, is out.
Shakuntala Devi as the name suggests revolves around the character’s life, her rise in the field of mathematics and her journey to finding a place in The Guinness Book of World Records. But at the same time, it also focusses on her personal life, the fight that she fought with her personal relations and more importantly with her daughter.
From being a human-computer, she struggled to be a normal mother and that affected and strained her relationship with her daughter.
Here’s the trailer:
In an earlier statement, Vidya Balan spoke about the famed mathematician and said, “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 film also stars Sanya Malhotra, Amit Sadh and Jisshu Sengupta in pivotal roles. Shakuntala Devi premieres on Amazon Prime on July 31.
