The actress also shared a math game in a promo clip. Vidya instructs viewers to pick a number, subtract it by 1, then multiply the result by 3, add 12 to it and divide the new number by 3. Finally add 5 more and then subtract the answer by the original number. She says that the answer will always be 8.
