Actor Sanya Malhotra, who is essaying the role of Shakuntala Devi's daughter in "Shakuntala Devi - Human Computer", has shared her first look from the movie. The "Badhaai Ho" star looks the spitting image of Devi's daughter Anupama Banerji in the photos she shared on Instagram. The actor has gone for long hair with bangs in place of her original curly locks for the part.
"Super excited to play Anupama Banerji in #ShakuntalaDevi Already in love with my look in the film," Malhotra captioned the photo.
