Vidya Balan has been very selective about the projects she does these days. She will soon be seen in ‘Shakuntala Devi’ which is a biopic on the famous Maths genius. But alongside, she has also come up with a short film, ‘Natkhat’. Interestingly, she is also turning producer with this short film.
Vidya took to her social media and announced the venture by releasing the first poster. She wrote, ““Ek kahaani sunoge…?” Presenting the first look of my first short film as producer and also as an actor #Natkhat ☀️. @rsvpmovies #ronniescrewvala @sanayairanizohrabi @shaanvs @annukampa_harsh (sic).” Have a look at the poster right here:
Interesting, isn’t it?
A few days back, Vidya took to her Instagram to make the official announcement of her feature film, ‘Shakuntala Devi’, and share the new poster as the caption read, “Delighted to announce that you will get to see #ShakuntalaDevi very soon on @primevideoin with all your loved ones 🙂. Thrilled that we will be able to entertain you in these unprecedented times . #WorldPremiereOnPrime #ShakuntalaDeviOnPrime (sic).”
Earlier talking about the film ‘Shakuntala Devi’ Vidya had said to PTI, “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.”
Directed by Anu Menon, the film has been bankrolled by Sony Pictures Networks Productions and Vikram Malhotra. It also stars Sanya Malhotra, Amit Sadh and Jisshu Sengupta in pivotal roles.
