Known for taking the road less traveled, Sanya Malhotra has always opted for challenging subjects and interesting characters, be it her blockbuster debut film Dangal, Pataakha or Badhaai Ho.
The young talented actor has now been signed for yet another fascinating subject, Shakuntala Devi – Human-Computer featuring the powerhouse talent Vidya Balan in the title role.
Interestingly, the makers of the biopic have consciously chosen a special day – Daughter’s Day (22nd September) to announce Sanya’s name for the film.
Sanya will be essaying the pivotal role of Anupama Banerji, daughter of Shakuntala Devi and she is very excited to be sharing the screen space opposite Vidya Balan for the first time. Anupama recently gave the mahurat clap for the movie that went on floors in London recently. She was also thrilled to see Vidya in her late mother Shakuntala Devi’s look and got quite emotional.
