Shakuntala Devi: Vidya Balan's upcoming movie to release on Amazon Prime
Mumbai : A day after the announcement of Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana's upcoming movie Gulabo Sitabi to release on Amazon Prime, it has been reported that Vidya Balan’s upcoming movie Shakuntala Devi will be released on the digital platform.
Director Anu Menon told mid-day, "I'm excited that the film will have its world première on Amazon Prime Video, and everyone will experience Shakuntala's incredible journey and Vidya's magical portrayal of her. Shakuntala's passion for math, and her determination to spread its joy to the world, was unparalleled. She lived ahead of her times and on her own terms. As we strive to change the narrative of the female protagonist on-screen, her story is one that [ought] to be told. No one could capture her wit and wisdom as well as Vidya did."
An official announcement of the release date is still awaited.
Vijay Subramaniam, director and head of content at the web platform says, "With India's most-anticipated films premiering exclusively on Prime Video, [we plan to] bring the cinematic experience to [people's] doorstep."
