‘Shakuntala Devi’ is a biographical drama film based on the life of human calculator Shakuntala Devi.

Shakuntala Devi was a writer and mental calculator who was named in 1982 in The Guinness Book of World Records.
She was last seen in the romantic drama film ‘Photograph’, directed by Ritesh Batra and co-starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui. It was a critical success but failed to make an impact at the box-office.

Sanya then played a village girl in Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Pataakha’, for which she had to learn the Rajasthani accent, and getting accustomed to living in a village.
She tasted major critical and commercial success last year with the comedy drama ‘Badhaai Ho’, directed by Amit Sharma and co-starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao.
