Vidya Balan's latest film Shakuntala Devi has dropped on the Prime Video. The movie is based on the life of genius mathematician Shakuntala Devi, who was dubbed the Human Computer by the media. The movie was supposed to release theatrically but amid the COVID-19 pandemic theatres across the world are shut. So, the makers decided to go ahead with the unconventional OTT first release.
