Talking about Shakuntala Devi, Vidya Balan said, “I am happy to have the opportunity to play the role of Shakuntala Devi, a human-computer. She was truly one who was able to establish her uniqueness, had a strong feminist voice, and inspired many to reach the pinnacle of success. But what really fascinates me is that it is not uncommon for a funny person to be associated with math, but he has completely disproved that notion. ”
