Director Anu Menon said, “I have always been inspired by Shakuntala Devi and her story is very relevant to today’s world.” We are aware of her mastery of mathematics, but she also has a personal aspect in the film, she was an intelligent, but slightly vulnerable woman and a mother who was far ahead of her time and worked on her own terms. I am sure that audiences all over the world will enjoy this film as much as we have enjoyed making it. “
