Based on the life of mathematical genius, the ‘human computer’ - Shakuntala Devi... Directed by Anu Menon... Summer 2020 release... Produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions and Abundantia Entertainment.

Vidya had earlier told PTI about the film, “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 math...and she completely turns that perception on its head.” Vidya said the team is proud to bring to life the story of “one of the most inspiring women of this country.”

“How incredible that The Math Genius, The Human Computer, was a small-town Indian girl, who took the world by storm,” she added.

Director Anu Menen told Mid-Day in an interview, “I have always been fascinated by Shakuntala Devi and felt that hers is an incredible story that had to be told. She was an extraordinary woman, who lived ahead of her times and on her own terms, unapologetically.”
