Earlier while talking about the film, Vidya said, “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.” Vidya said the team is proud to bring to life the story of “one of the most inspiring women of this country.”

“How incredible that The Math Genius, The Human-Computer, was a small-town Indian girl, who took the world by storm,” she added.

Director Anu Menen told in an interview, “I have always been fascinated by Shakuntala Devi and felt that hers is an incredible story that had to be told. She was an extraordinary woman, who lived ahead of her times and on her own terms, unapologetically.”

Vidya's multi-starrer Mission Mangal is as yet performing great in the cinema world. The film featured Akshay Kumar, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Kirti Kulhari and Nithya Menen. The film has turned into the most elevated Independence Day grosser ever with accumulations of over Rs 200 crore. It recounts to the account of India's Mars Orbiter Mission which was accomplished by a group of ladies researchers.
