Dangal star Sanya Malhotra has joined Vidya Balan for the Shakuntala Devi biopic and she exposition the role of Shakuntala Devi’s little girl Anupama Banerji. The producers reported the actor’s casting on the occasion of Daughter’s Day.
“I am very excited to play the iconic Shakuntala Devi’s daughter – Anupama Banerji. Everyone knows the achievements of the math genius Shakuntala Devi. I’m thrilled to bring on-screen this dynamic mother-daughter relationship and equally thrilled to work with Vidya Balan. Also looking forward to my first association with Sony Pictures Networks Productions and Vikram Malhotra,” Sanya said in an announcement.
Movie’s director Anu Menon said she is anticipating working with Sanya. When I met my namesake Anupama Banerji, Shakuntala’s girl, I went to discover the tale of a maths whiz – yet through spending time with Anupama, I found the tale of a lady who was a PC as well as human as well.
What’s more, I can’t think about a superior individual than Sanya who can catch the adoration for girl for her indefinable mother. “Sanya instinctively understood the character and her journey – and I can’t wait to start shooting with her. I think the audience will fall in love with both Sanya’s and Vidya’s characters,” she said. Sanya is relied upon to begin the go for the film by the end of this month.
