Sanya Malhotra gave a bang-on performance and aced the many phases of a real-life character, Anupama Banerji in the Shakuntala Devi biopic. Playing Shakuntala Devi’s daughter’s character, the actress has been receiving rave reviews across for her character.
Sanya has portrayed 20 years of the real-life character— from an adolescent to a teenager, to a mature adult, a mother, a wife and it has been nothing less than a treat for the audiences. With such a beautiful character, the actress proved her versatility once again.
Here's what the audiences are saying,
'While the world will praise the performance of
to the skies, and rightly so, you Sanya, were a revelation! You truly held your own in front of a powerhouse performer.. Hope we get to see more of you.. ????????'
'Ma'am you did an amazing work in the movie. Really loved how beautifully u depicted ur emotions on screen??
Admire u since the days of St. Francis school and big fan of your dance. Keep making us proud ma'am.
Whenever see u onscreen we go like humari school me teacher thi?????'
Here's what critics are saying,
She is definitely a surprise package in the movie… This 28-year-old girl turned into the 16-year daughter of Shakuntala Devi (Anupama Banerjee) and made us know how a daughter fought with herself whenever she missed her mother. She fits the perfect bill and awestruck us portraying the roles of a schoolgirl to a girlfriend.
The film’s most impressive performer, however, is Malhotra, Balan’s on-screen daughter. Shakuntala Devi stirs alive whenever she enters the frame. Fiery, distressed, firm, she gives the film an emotional anchor it so badly needs. Her role also provides a sense of wholeness and finality, of a journey becoming a destination.
With so much love which keeps coming in from everywhere, Sanya thanked her audiences with a post on her social media and said, "She didn't always get the 'right' answers
Thank you for all your AMAZING comments and reviews!
