Vidya Balan’s First Look from Human Computer Shakuntala Devi Biopic Out
We must say it has raised our expectations for the film. Vidya Balan looks the spitting image of the mathematician genius, where she has donned a saree and standing tall with pride and grace.
According to reports, the film’s shoot finally starts in London today. It is also reported that Vidya waited for four months after signing the film to actually get into the skin of the character and familiarise Devi and her craft. Moreover, as Shakuntala Devi was a mathematician master, Balan also learned about her skills that earned her the title of ‘Human Computer’. Her wicked sense of humour made her popular and loved among her peers.
While talking about playing the character, Vidya Balan earlier said in a statement said, “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.”
The film is directed by Anu Menon, who has also co-written the screenplay.
