Mumbai: Actress Vidya Balan is back and the trailer of her upcoming release Shakuntala Devi will be unveiled on Tuesday.

The movie is based on the life of math wizard Shakuntala Devi.

She tweeted, "Get ready to meet the genius! Trailer out tomorrow. Meet #ShakuntalaDeviOnPrime July 31, on @PrimeVideoIN . @sanyamalhotra07
@Jisshusengupta @TheAmitSadh @anumenon1805 @sonypicsprodns
@vikramix @Abundantia_Ent @ShikhaaSharma03."

In this age of COVID-19 when movies are released online,  Shakuntala Devi will get its global premiere on the internet on July 31.

The cinema halls are closed these days and hence the movies are not released on the traditional platform.

Directed by Anu Menon and produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions and Vikram Malhotra (Abundantia Entertainment), the biographical drama stars National Award-winning actress Vidya Balan in the lead, essaying the role of the globally renowned Indian mathematics genius, who was popularly known as the ‘human computer’.

Shakuntala Devi also stars Sanya Malhotra of Dangal and Badhaai Ho fame, who will be seen playing the role of Shakuntala Devi’s daughter with whom the genius enjoyed a complicated but extraordinary relationship, alongside Jisshu Sengupta and Amit Sadh in pivotal roles.

The screenplay is written by Anu Menon and Nayanika Mahtani, while the dialogues are penned by Ishita Moitra.

Earlier Gulabo Sitabo, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana, released on Amazon Prime owing to the coronavirus pandemic.
