Up next, Jayasurya - Aditi Rao Hydari’s romantic drama Sufiyum Sujatayum will release tomorrow (July 3). Prime Video has now released a promo video of their next big release - Shakuntala Devi that stars Vidya Balan in the lead role.

Directed by Anu Menon, Shakuntala Devi also features Jisshu Sengupta, Sanya Malhotra and Amit Sadh in the star cast. This film is the biopic of Shakuntala Devi, who is known as the human computer. Shakuntala Devi earned her a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for her impeccable talent in calculating complicated mathematical numbers mentally. At the age of six, she surprised everyone by demonstrating her arithmetic abilities.

Apart from her achievements in the field of mathematics, Shakuntala was also a writer who wrote books about mathematics and astrology. She had also wrote the book 'The World of Homosexuals', which is considered to be the first study of homosexuality in India. Vidya Balan will be giving life to this talented genius through the film and it has got some good expectations among the film buffs.

Shakuntala Devi is all set to release on July 31 and this latest promo video was an announcement about that. This promo looks quite interesting and creates a curiosity about the film. The treatment is light-hearted and going by that, Shakuntala Devi seems to be a positive and sweet film. Produced by Vikram Malhotra under the banner of Abundantia Entertainment, Shakuntala Devi has music scored by Sachin - Jigar, Tanishk Bagchi, cinematography by Sriram Ganapathy and editing by Chandan Arora.

Vidya Balan was last seen in the blockbuster Hindi film, Mission Mangal that starred Akshay Kumar in the lead role.
