New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: The trailer of Vidya Balan's human computer avatar in director Anu Menon's biographical drama 'Shakuntala Devi' released on Wednesday. The biopic of India's "human computer" Shakuntala Devi will release on Amazon Prime Video on July 31. The film keeps up the trend of direct OTT releases, skipping the theatrical releases altogether amid the Coronavirus pandemic. The film also stars 'Dangal' fame Sanya Malhotra in an important role, playing Shakuntala Devi’s daughter.

The trailer details upon an irreplaceable talent added with an inherent passion for Mathematics which the late Shakuntala Devi possessed, that made her believe that 'Maths has no rules. Only Magic'. And that’s how one of the most impeccable Mathematicians of Independent India made the subject which makes a lot of people shake in fear due to expansive combinations of equations and fields in an equitable dynamic, her best friend.

But sometimes, you may face the problems you never anticipated would come your way, when your passion ends up determining your family dynamics. The trailer shows an ‘amazing’ Shakuntala Devi struggling to be a ‘normal’ mother. Since Shakuntala never loses, will she win the battle-turned-war involving her motherhood too? That’s the answer the film is expected to drop to the audience on 31st July.

Vidya Balan, while talking about the film, had said earlier, "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 added.
