Mumbai: Actor Amit Sadh is the latest addition to the cast of “Shakuntala Devi – Human Computer”, fronted by Vidya Balan.

The film is based on the life of the mathematics genius Shakuntala Devi who was known for her ability to make incredibly swift calculations.

According to the makers Sadh will play the role of Shakuntala Devi’s son-in-law in the film.

Sanya Malhotra essays the role of her daughter in the feature, directed by Anu Menon.

“When I read the script I got to know so much more about the life of the incredible Shakuntala Devi. I’m very excited to join a cast featuring a powerhouse talent like Vidya Balan and the amazing Sanya Malhotra. I look forward to bring Ajay’s character alive on the big screen,” Sadh said in a statement.

“I’ve been working with Anu for the last couple of weeks. I respect her craft and precision. Her way of directing and story telling has enhanced my performance each day. She has helped me understand Ajay’s character and narrative in context to the overall story in a very engaging manner,” he added.

Menon said working with Sadh is a sheer joy.

“Amit has such a credible and charismatic presence in the film that his character forms the perfect foil to the two women, Shakuntala & Anu. As an actor, he totally compliments the craft that Vidya and Sanya bring to the film. Working with him has been sheer joy, he gives in 1000 per cent of himself and his passion is palpable and satisfying for a director.”

Produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions and Vikram Malhotra, the film will hit the theatres in summer 2020.
