Today is 131st Birth Anniversary of our great Mathematician Sir Srinivasa Ramanujan. On his honour every year this 22nd December celebrate as 'National Mathematics Day'!
On this remembered.. biographical film on Srinivasa Ramanujan..'The Man Who Knew Infinity' (2015) which was not made by Indians;
but by foreigners! This was based
on novel of same name by American science writer Robert Kanige!
American producers like Edward Pressman produced that film which directed by American Matthew Brown! In this London base NRI
actor ('Slumdog Millionaire' fame) Dev Patel portrayed this great..
S. Ramanujan! This film screened
at various international film festivals and honoured!
One important thing to mention that.. when Bollywood filmmakers here earning money from making gangster films on dons/bhais; in Hollywood filmmakers making films on our India's great personalities!
Our filmmakers should seriously think about what kind of entertainment they are giving to society!
Anyway, I salute to our great Ramanujan!!
