Kajol, Neha Dhupia, Shruti Haasan and starring more six actresses short film, Devi’s first look is out. The film stars Kajol, Neha Dhupia, Shruti Haasan, Neena Kulkarni, Mukta Barve, Sandhya Mhatre, Rama Joshi, Shivani Raghuvanshi, and Yashaswini Dayama. The first-ever short film that has the cast of 9 actresses and is very impactful at the same time. In the poster, we see 9 actresses together each of them having a different expression. This short film is shot in just two days and is a story of 9 women who have faced hardships and are from different strata of society. This film is a story based on these women sharing a small room space altogether and trying to share their story in the world were facing such oppression and pain is a part of life.
Devi marks the first short film project for both Kajol and Shruti Haasan, to which Shruti stated, “I loved the concept of the film when I heard it. We often talk about sisterhood and how women need to stand with each other. Devi highlights that aspect in such a lovely way, with such a powerful message. It’s disturbingly poignant and that’s why I knew I had to be part of it, and I couldn’t have found a more perfect film to make my debut on the digital platform.”
Talking about her excitement, Kajol stated, “I couldn’t have chosen a better subject than Devi for my first short film. It’s a powerful statement, written very well by Priyanka. It’s a poignant film, one that needs to be shared with the world, especially today. My character, Jyoti, is vastly different from me in many ways, but uncannily we share a lot too. In today’s times when gender discrimination, abuse and violence is being spoken about vociferously, films like Devi are far more relevant and I am glad to have got the opportunity to participate.”
