# Headlines Entertainment Movie Trailers Trending Videos

Vidya Balan starrer Shakuntala Devi is one of the most awaited movies this year. Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, this film too shall premiere on an online streaming platform, Amazon Prime Video, on the 31st of July 2020.

It has been just 2 hours since the trailer released and it has over 4 lakh views already! Vidya Balan sure knows how to get people excited. Vidya Balan is one of the finest actresses in the Bollywood film industry.

Known for her versatile roles, in this film Vidya will be playing the titular role, Shakuntala Devi, who is a famous mathematician in the film.

The trailer gives glimpses of Shakuntala Devi’s life story. The trailer beautifully highlights the journey of Shakuntala Devi from being a child prodigy to gaining global recognition as the ‘human computer’ and getting her name into the Guinness Book of World Records. The last part of the trailer shows her personal life in which she struggles to balance parenting and her love for math. The trailer shows glimpses of the bitter-sweet relationship between Shakuntala Devi and her beloved daughter.

This is a great way to display parenting while also trying to accomplish your goals. On the other hand, the actress took to her social media platform and shared a picture of her holding an equation. She captioned the post with, “Solve for c… if you do, you will c the SURPRISE! Get a chance to see the trailer before the world. Meet #ShakuntalaDeviOnPrime July 31, on @primevideoin @sanyamalhotra_ @senguptajisshu @theamitsadh @directormenon @sonypicsprodns @ivikramix @abundantiaent @shikhaarif.sharma.”

The film is helmed by Bollywood director Anu Menon and produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions and Vikram Malhotra of Abundantia Entertainment.

Earlier in an interview, when Vidya Balan was asked about Shakuntala Devi, she said, “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.”

I’m really excited to see Vidya Balan on the big screen after a while now.
