New Delhi, July 21: Vidya Balan sports five distinct looks to represent the different phases of the life of her titular protagonist in the upcoming film Shakuntala Devi.

The people behind Vidya’s various looks — Shreyas Mhatre, Shalaka Bhosle and Niharika Bhasin — had to research immensely to showcase the character in the most authentic manner.

Mhatre, who took care of the make-up, told IANS that he went through Shakuntala Devi’s pictures and tried to match it with Vidya. Shakuntala Devi: How The Math Genius’ Daughter Helped in Developing Vidya Balan’s Character in the Biopic.

“I had to create different looks based on Shakuntala Devi’s age in the film. I did research on Shakuntala Devi, went through her pictures and tried to match Vidya’s look with her face. After a lot of discussions with Vidya and the director, I settled down for these five looks,” Mhatre said.

In the film, based on the life of the late Shakuntala Devi, who is widely revered as the human computer for her innate ability to make complex mathematical calculations within seconds, Vidya flaunts long hair to a short bob in different phases.

Shalaka Bhosle told IANS that the film essentially captures the different stages of Shakuntala Devi’s life between 1940s and the 2000s.

“So apart from going through original Shakuntala Devi pictures, we also actually did a lot of research on that era. (Director) Anu Menon told us Shakuntala Devi did a lot of hairstyle changes through the various stages of her life, and we worked accordingly. We did long plaits to short hair in the film. We went through original Shakuntala Devi videos on YouTube and pulled out many references before finalising the looks.”

In terms of ensembles for Vidya, Niharika Bhasin, who did the styling, agrees that with costumes it really gets difficult.

“Normally we sit down and decide hair, make-up, wardrobe together, so all of it comes together to formulate the look of a character. We researched Shakuntala Devi’s lifespan and found out what were the aspects of style and fashion that were prevalent during those decades. We added that to recreate the character,” Bhasin said.

Bhasin added that the research went into “what was happening in India fashion-wise in those times” adding: “She was wealthy enough to follow the fashion or she was in tune with fashion. Therefore, it took a lot to build the character.”

Directed and written by Anu Menon, the film also stars Sanya Malhotra, who will be seen playing the role of Shakuntala’s daughter Anupama, along with Amit Sadh and Jisshu Sengupta in pivotal roles. Shakuntala Devi: Vidya Balan’s Film To Show The Late Maths Whiz’s Pioneering Work In LGBT Movement And We Have Proof.

The screenplay is written by Menon along with Nayanika Mahtani, while the dialogues are penned by Ishita Moitra.

FYI, it was during Kavita’s captaincy Aly Goni, Abhinav Shukla, Eijaz Khan, Jasmin Bhasin were seen stealing luxuries items. If Kavita comes out as a winner in this task, she will get a chance to fight as a candidate for the next captaincy.

Kavita and Aly Goni’s Ugly Fight

Nikki Tamboli tells Kavita that she should first take away essential items of Aly as he was the one who gave Pavitra Punia chocolates (luxury item). The captain goes to the bathroom area and picks Aly’s trimmer and puts it in the huge box kept in the garden area. This irks Goni and he takes his trimmer back. Amid this, the two start arguing wherein the captain’s baap comment fumes Aly and he gets violent towards Kavita. She gets hurt and so demands Aly’s elimination.

Sofia Hayat Angry on Comparisons With Sana Khan, Says ‘I Am More Spiritual in My Nudity Than Fully Dressed’




A month after announcing her departure from the entertainment industry, Sana Khan took the internet by a storm once again when she announced her marriage with Anas Sayed recently. The couple got hitched on November 20 in an intimate wedding and have become the talk of the town. She also got compared to Former Bigg Boss contestant Sofia Hayat as well. Many people on the internet called Sana the next Sofia Hayat as well. Reacting to this, former singer Sofia Hayat has now reacted to these baseless analogies. Sofia Hayat Responds to the Claims of Hurting Religious Sentiments Due to Her Semi-Nude Instagram Pic.

Sofia expressed her anger and explained how spirituality can mean different things to different people. In an exclusive chat with SpotboyE, the singer said, “I am fed up with my comparison to Sana Khan. What is wrong with some people. They think spirituality is all about what dress you wear! When I was a nun, I did not have sex for 18 months.”

She went on to say, “Now, I do not wear my nun’s outfit every day…does not make me less spiritual. I am more spiritual in my nudity than fully dressed, low-minded, and low vibrational people, do not understand this. I have not had sex in 3 years. I am still Mother Sofia and still spiritual.’

For the uninitiated, Sofia had announced that she is converting into a nun back in 2016. However, a year after this announcement, she married Romanian interior designer, Vlad Stanescu. The couple parted ways in 2018 after Sofia accused Vlad of infidelity. Sana Khan Quits Showbiz: Muzamil Ibrahim, Ridhi Dogra, Divya Agarwal, Salman Yusuff Khan Support Former Bigg Boss Contestant.
