The press meet of Karthi-Rakul Preet Singh starrer DEV was held this evening in Chennai with entire team present to interact with media. The film production is by S Lakshman of Prince Pictures, Harris Jayaraj composing music. Prakash Raj, Ramya Krishnan, RJ Vignesh, Amrutha and many other prominent actors are a part of this film, which is scheduled for release on February 14.
Actor Karthi said, “Producer Lakshman and I have been childhood friends and we have always been together from our early stages of lives. I have always wondered how a person can be so much genuine and honest. When he decided to venture into production, I was so much happy and confident that he will be successful for his grandfather was the producer of “Madura Veeran” and the production of films is in his genes. I am so much emotionally excited as we are doing a film together.”
Shedding lights on the film, Karthi says, “This is a love story, but it isn’t about romance. It is a film that speaks about loving everything around you. Live the moment, love and do what your heart says is what DEV all about. Rajath Ravishankar is really a talented filmmaker and being a first-timer, he has exerted an unbelievable work. I always keep telling him that he should continue to make more movies. Rakul Preet Singh has been a great performer and she has really breathed more life into this character. Every time when Harish Jayaraj composes music for Suriya Anna, I always wonder and desire when I will get that opportunity. Now I am happy that it’s happening through DEV. Everyone in the film has worked giving heart and soul into the film, which I believe audiences will surely enjoy in theatres.”
Actress Rakul Preet Singh said, “When working with Karthi in Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru, I used to tell Karthi that I wanted to work in a full-fledged romantic film. This is when he asked me to listen to a script and I was so much obsessed with it. Rajath Ravishankar has crafted a story that is so much colourful with amusing and emotional elements spangled together.”
Director Rajath Ravishankar said, “The inception of DEV happened over a casual chat and I never thought it would be my first project. I just wrote it without any such plans. I am unconditionally thankful to Lakshman sir for having given me an opportunity. It’s same with Karthi sir who believed in a newcomer like me.”
Producer Lakshman of Prince Pictures said, “Karthi has been a part of my life from childhood and this is a beautiful moment to have both of us working together. I am literally happy that Rajath Ravishankar has delivered what he promised as a script. Shooting this film across various locations under many adverse conditions was a challenge and I am awe-stricken by the way how the production team pulled it off.”
