You can bet on Vidya Balan for gritty and heartwarming roles. After the coy RJ in Tumhari Sulu and a determined scientist in Mission Mangal, she will be seen as Math whiz Shakuntala Devi. She was known to be a human-computer. Hence, Vidya will play the titular role of this genius in Anu Menon directed, Shakuntala Devi-Human Computer. On the occasion of World Mathematics Day, the makers released the motion poster of the film, featuring her. Shakuntala Devi: Human-Computer - Sanya Malhotra to Play Vidya Balan's Daughter in the Biopic on Indian Mathematician.
The tagline of the motion poster also says that she made the maths fun. Well, we don't know how many would love to use 'maths' and 'fun' in a single sentence. However, we can bet on the director and the actress, of course, to make it a bit interesting for those who were traumatised by the subject during their childhood! Check out this video below.
Here's the Motion Poster of Shakuntala Devi-Human Computer

It is fun to see Vidya in that classy, studious, short-hair look. Also, apart from her, Dangal actress Sanya Malhotra will be seen too. She is playing the role of Shakuntala Devi's daughter, Anupama Banerji. Shakuntala Devi was also known as the mental calculator for her ability to calculate tough problems within minutes with no formal education in the subject. She could solve the maths problems of an 18-year-old just at the age of five. The team of this film recently shot for the film in the UK for about fifteen days before returning to tinsel town.
