The film Shakuntala Devi is based on the real-life personality, and in real life it was all over the news that her husband was gay after she mentioned it during the release of her book The World of Homosexuals.
But apparently, in the film, they claim that it was all a lie and her husband was not gay. On what basis does the film contradict public knowledge in this significant matter? Is there any legitimate proof for her husband not being gay in the film or in reality? Did the filmmakers have additional information for making this claim or did they take creative liberties with this? Or is it intentionally contradicting reality?
