Indo-American actress Devika Bhise will play the female lead in visionary Indian mathematician Ramanujan biopic, titled ‘The Man Who Knew Infinity’. The film, which stars ‘Slumdog Millionare’ actor Dev Patel as Srinivasa Ramanujan, will see Devika as his wife, Janaki.
Based on the biography of the same name by Robert Kanigel, the film also stars Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons, who plays Ramanujan’s mentor, G H Hardy.
“I feel fortunate to be able to portray such a rich character who has had a fascinating life. My extensive training in Bharatanatyam has helped me understand the intricacies of the Tamilian Brahmin Iyengar culture community, which gives me a lot of insight for this particular role,” Devika said in a statement.
Born and raised in Manhattan, the actress previously played the role of the goddess Namagiri in ‘The Partition’, a play based on the book ‘The Man Who Knew Infinity’. Devika has also acted in ‘The Accidental Husband’ (2008) co-starring Uma Thurman and ‘Anamika: Her Glorious Past’ (2006).
