Vidya jocundly stated, solving Maths equations were the most difficult part for her. “Really doing the Maths was. For Shakuntala Devi, it was nothing because she was a genius.”

Vidya, later on, related on a serious note that imbibing her mannerisms was the most challenging thing to do, “I had to interact with people in the way she did. She used to say, ‘okay I want five good looking boys or five good-looking men’, she would engage people in the performances and I think she had this attitude towards Maths and for her Maths was magic. She had a swag in the way she gave her answers, it was fast, I had to work on that. And that’s what was the most challenging part for me.” She concluded.
