    The screenplay is penned by Menon along with Nayanika Mahtani, while Ishita Moitra is credited for dialogues.

    "Shakuntala Devi" also stars Sanya Malhotra, Amit Sadh and Jisshu Sengupta in pivotal roles.

    The film was scheduled to be theatrically released on May 8, but was delayed due to Covid-19 outbreak.

    Amazon has previously released director Shoojit Sircar's "Gulabo Sitabo", with five other films from the south, including "Penguin", "Law", "French Biryani", "Sufiyum Sujathayum".

    More films heading to streaming platforms include "Gunjan Saxena - The Kargil Girl", which will be available on Netflix, and "Laxxmi Bomb", "Bhuj: The Pride of India", "Sadak 2", "Dil Bechara", "The Big Bull", "Khuda Haafiz" and "Lootcase" on Disney+Hotstar.

    Start Clean Eating

    Too busy to prioritise what you eat? It just needs a conscious thought before eating any meal and basic understanding of different kinds of food and nutrients like Vitamin C, Vitamin A, iron, calcium, protein, energy and folic acid.

    It is important to consume food that can provide good nutrition for a healthy lifestyle.

    The Indian dietary guidelines recommend that a balanced diet should provide around 50-60% of total calories from carbohydrates, preferably complex carbohydrates, about 10-15% from proteins, and 20-30% from both visible and invisible fats. A balance diet should also provide vitamins and minerals along with dietary fibres and antioxidants.

    Dr Rajan Sankar, Senior Advisor - Nutrition at Tata Trusts, shares what one needs to eat to get started.
