Dev Patel, who made his impressive acting debut with Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire, will be next seen in The Man Who Knew Infinity, which is based on the life of mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan. Executive producer Swati Bhise claims that the film, which also marks the debut of classical dancer and actress Devika Bhise (who plays Ramanujan’s supportive wife), is a must watch for youngsters, especially students.
Swati Bhise said,
“Ramanujan achieved something at a young age, which will last for centuries and this story needs to be shared with the world, especially students in schools and colleges. They need to be exposed to such stories, which will inspire them and make a positive impact on their young minds. The Man Who Knew Infinity is a film which should be seen in every home, for it will inspire millions of youngsters.”
An Edward R. Pressman/Animus Films production in association with Cayenne Pepper Productions, The Man Who Knew Infinity – starring Dev Patel, Jeremy Irons, Devika Bhise, Stephen Fry, Toby Jones, and Arundhati Nag – has been written and directed by Matthew Brown. It is slated to release in English and Tamil on April 29, 2016.
