Vidya Balan, who is donning the hat of the maths wizard Shakuntala Devi in Amazon Prime Video’s recently released biographical drama of the same name, is seen in a video where she uses her mathematical prowess to decode the mysteries of the Amazon Original Series Breathe: Into the Shadows that stars Abhishek Bachchan, Nithya Menen and Amit Sadh.

Demystifying the general thought of ‘who uses math in real life’, Vidya decodes Siya’s kidnapping scene in no time. During the investigation, it is revealed that the kidnapper blocked the view of the CCTV with helium-filled balloons.

Furthermore, Vidya decodes many other mysteries and explains that everything can be revealed by calculations, including the velocity of Kabir Sawant’s slap as well as how Abhishek Bachchan as Dr. Avinash dodged the cameras by being invisible at the right angles. However, there’s one thing that even Vidya couldn’t figure out – what is the mystery behind “C-16”?
