Vidya Balan will soon be seen playing the mathematics genius Shakuntala Devi in her biopic. The news got recently confirmed and will be directed by Anu Menon and produced under Vikram Malhotra’s Abunduntia Entertainment. Vidya recently stated that she is thrilled to have got this opportunity. She commented, “I am extremely excited to play the human computer, Shakuntala Devi, on the big screen. 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 maths and she completely turns that perception on its head,” she said in an official statement.
