Brown along with the actors of the film Dev Patel, Toby Jones, Devika Bhise, Producer Edward Ramback Pressman, producer Annie Marie Mc Encroe and Executive Producer & Associate Producer Swati Bhise attended a press conference in Goa and interacted with media and fans.
The film is based on the life of the great Indian mathematician Ramanujan, whose research in the field of number theory took English academe by storm during the First World War. His friendship with Cambridge professor GH Hardy forever changed the world of mathematics. His evolving friendship with professor, who championed his brilliance against racism and prejudice, is the real core of the film. Highly engaging performances by Dev Patel in the lead role and Jeremy Irons as his curmudgeonly mentor gradually warm up the Cambridge story.
