It's a wrap for Vidya Balan's 'Shakuntala Devi' and Ayushmann Khurrana's 'Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan' Banaras schedule


Vidya Balan is a bona fide star and there ain't a denial. The actress, who has wowed us with a variety of characters including that of a space scientist in the recently released Mission Mangal, is back again with another interesting and strong role with a biopic on the human-computer Shakuntala Devi. Vidya as Shakuntala will play the lead role and has generated the right amount of curiosity among her fans with her first look. Now, after months of a rigorous schedule, the team, on Tuesday, called it a wrap on Shakuntala Devi

Marking the wrap, Vidya along with team behind the film celebrated the occasion by cutting a cake. Vidya, not just clicked pictures with the crew, but also posed with her onscreen husband Jisshu Sengupta for a  selfie. The makers also gifted the team a 'Shakuntala Devi' customised T-Shirts. Shakuntala Devi, apart from Vidya and Jisshu, stars Sanya Malhotra and Amit Sadh in important roles. Directed and co-written by Anu Menon, the film is produced by Vikram Malhotra. It is scheduled for a Summer 2020 release.
