Bollywood actress Vidya Balan has recently announced the release date of her upcoming film Shakuntala Devi. The film will begin streaming on Amazon Prime Video from July 31.

To make the announcement, Vidya Balan shared a video on Twitter where she confused her audience by throwing at them some tough mathematical calculations.

In the film, Vidya will be essaying the role of "human computer" and maths genius Shakuntala Devi. While Sanya Malhotra will play Vidya's on-screen daughter Anupama Banerji, in the upcoming movie.

Shakuntala Devi, the mathematical wizard, or 'human-computer' a moniker she earned, was known for her ability to make incredibly swift calculations. Shakuntala's genius was first discovered at the age of 5 when she solved a math problem for 18-year-old students. Though she never received any formal education, her talent for numbers also earned her a place in the 1982 edition of The Guinness Book of World Records.
