Shakuntala Devi : BTS from the film set
Shakuntala Devi : BTS from the film set. Vidya Balan’s uplcoming movie Shakuntala Devi is premering on the 31st July. Due to the pandemic and theatres being shut, makers of the film like many others, decided to go the digital route and so the film will be available to the audience on Amazon Prime. Recently, the portal released a BTS video from the sets of the film Shakuntala Devi. This light hearted video where we see Vidya Balan playing the title role is seen asking a crew member a rather tough math problem while she waits for the latter to answer. Just about in a few seconds, the crew member comes up with a vague answering mentioning it has to have number 5 in the end as the equation had 5 in the end. Knowing Vidya, she jokingly rated her IQ and corrected her with the right answer.
She admitted that she didn’t prep as such to play the role of a mathematician, but opened up about how portraying the eponymous role of Shakuntala Devi in the upcoming biopic on Amazon Prime Video got her interested in Vedic Math as she discovered it has so many tricks and shortcuts to easily calculate a certain degree of complex equations. Check out the video here:
She even demonstrates her newfound ability of solving tough mathematical problems faster, in the above video, calling it “interesting and exciting to quickly work out the answers”. Shakuntala Devi also stars Sanya Malhotra and Amit Sadh as the titular character’s daughter and son-in-law. The film is directed by Anu Menon of Four More Shots Please season 1 fame and is slated to premiere on Amazon Prime on 31st July.
