Anu Menon is directing a film based on the Math genius Shakuntala Devi. It will be portrayed by Vidya Balan for her next film. Abudantia Entertainment is producing the film which is a 2020 summer release . “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,” Vidya said in a statement. “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.” It is a life 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. Anu Menon said the Tumhari Sulu actor was an apt choice for the film. The dialogues are penned by Ishita Moitra and Anu Menon wrote the story along with Nayanika Mahtani.
