The first look from Devara's first single, Fear Song, is reportedly set around this theme of carnage. It must be noted, that the team thus far has been rather tight-lipped about the context of the film, wanting to keep it under wraps. Separately, Janhvi Kapoor will be Jr NTR's leading lady in the film - a project which will also be marking her official Tollywood debut.
