Vidya Balan, who has a great track record with biopics, is all set to kickstart her next ambitious project: A biopic on Shakuntala Devi. After going through several look tests, Vidya has finally nailed it with her final look. The actress gave a glimpse into the extraordinary life of the mathematical genius on social media.

She captioned her post: “She was extraordinary, in every sense of the word! Know the story of the child prodigy & the human-computer, #ShakuntalaDevi @sonypicsprodns @Abundantia_Ent @anumenon1805 @vikramix @SnehaRajani”

In an earlier interview, she has spoken at length about this project. “I haven’t had much time to prepare.  But she is a very interesting character because she was a woman. You have a certain perception of mathematicians and she was fun. I can’t talk about instances yet, but that’s what fascinated me about her. She has a great and wicked sense of humour, so I identified with her,” Vidya had said.
