Devara producers worried about Koratala Siva’s direction post Acharya failure? Kalyan Ram responds
In a recent interview, Devara's producer Kalyan Ram shared his thought process behind choosing Koratala Siva as the film's director.
Devara, starring Jr NTR and Janhvi Kapoor, will make its theatrical debut on April 5, next year. The film is directed by Koratala Siva, whose last release, Acharya, didn’t do well at the box office. Even after its failure, the director was offered a big-budgeted film like Devara. When asked about the reason behind this decision, producer Kalyan Ram expressed his belief in Koratala’s direction.

In a conversation with Gulte, Kalyan Ram shared his thought process on choosing Koratala Siva as Devara’s director. The actor-producer said, “You will definitely understand why we trusted Koratala Siva after the failure of Acharya when you watch the Devara glimpse. We will be releasing the glimpse soon.”
Approximately 80% of the filming for Devara-Part 1 has been successfully finished. According to Kalyan Ram, the team is hard at work on the visual effects (VFX) for the film and will provide the eagerly awaited movie release date as soon as they are happy with the VFX quality. The Devara producer also informed that the team did a lot of research and development to achieve accuracy in their visual effects.
