For the uninitiated, Sanya made her debut in Bollywood with the highest-grossing movie of all time, Dangal and since then, she has been a favourite in the industry for not just the audience but also, the directors and artists all over. She was then seen in Badhai Ho opposite Ayushmann Khurana. Sanya was last seen in Photograph opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui. It also featured Farrukh Jaffar, Geetanjali Kulkarni, Vijay Raaz, Jim Sarbh, Akash Sinha and Saharsh Kumar Shukla.
In October this year, Sanya gave fans a glimpse of her much-awaited look from the upcoming film ‘Shakuntala Devi – Human Computer,’ which stars Vidya Balan as the maths whiz. The actor, who is playing Vidya’s on-screen daughter Anupama Banerji, featured in the picture donning a multi-coloured track jacket and light blue jeans. The highlight of the look remains the ‘Dangal’ actor’s new hairstyle which is straighter unlike her curly hair with long bangs. ‘Shakuntala Devi – Human-Computer’ is produced by Sony Pictures Network Productions and Vikram Malhotra. The film is slated to hit the theatres during summer 2020.
