Mumbai, May 21 -- This could be Dev Patel's most challenging role to date. The actor has been roped in to play the famous mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan in a co-production by Prashita Chaudhary's Cinemorphic Entertainment and Hollywood producer Edward Pressman, titled The Man Who Knew Infinity: A Life Of The Genius Ramanujan.

"I read the book last year and was keen to turn it into a film. It will be shot in Chennai and then in London," says Prashita.
