Bollywood actress Vidya Balan shares the first look poster of her film Shakuntala Devi

Vidya Balan's Shakuntala Devi is one of the most anticipated films in 2020. Anu Menon has directed the biopic film based on the real-life story of the maths genius. On Tuesday morning Vidya Balan shared the first look poster of her film Shakuntala Devi on twitter. Anu Menon is best known for his work in shows like Four More Shots Please season 1 and Waiting. Sony Pictures Networks and Vikram Malhotra have produced the film. The film is entirely skipping a theatrical release and going to premiere on Amazon Prime Video soon. The trend of direct digital release began when Shoojit Sircar released Gulabo Sitabo on Amazon Prime Video. The film was an instant hit and stars Ayushmaan Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan.

 
Taking to Twitter Vidya Balan wrote, "Get ready to meet the genius! Trailer out tomorrow. Meet #ShakuntalaDeviOnPrime July 31, on @PrimeVideoIN. @sanyamalhotra07 @Jisshusengupta @TheAmitSadh @anumenon1805 @sonypicsprodns @vikramix @Abundantia_Ent @ShikhaaSharma03."
 
Speaking about her role in the film Vidya Balan previously said, "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, " she added.
 
The actress finished shooting for Shakuntala Devi in November of last year. The film was set for release in the summer of 2020. However, due to the Coronavirus pandemic theatres across the country are still shut.
