Shakuntala Devi: Trailer
The trailer of the film is yet to be released. However, here is the video for the film announcement.
Shakuntala Devi: Plot
When asked about the story, director of the film Anu Menon said: Shakuntala Devi’s passion for maths and her determination to spread its joy to the world was unparalleled. She lived ahead of her times and on her own terms – and as we all strive to change the narrative of the female protagonist on-screen, her story is one that calls out to be told. And there’s no one better than Vidya Balan to capture Shakuntala’s wit and wisdom. I’m so excited that the film will have its world premiere on Amazon Prime Video and everyone will get to experience Shakuntala’s incredible journey and Vidya’s magical portrayal of her soon.
Shakuntala Devi: Cast
Starring Vidya Balan, Sanya Malhotra, Amit Sadh, and Jisshu Sengupta, Bollywood movie Shakuntala Devi will release on Amazon Prime Video.
