Jr NTR Devara to be delayed again?

Devara is a VFX heavy film and is set against the coastal backdrop. The makers have pegged it as a first-of-its kind experience that will come out from the Indian film industry. In making the project, it seems like the makers will have to invest more time than expected.

According to Gulte, the hearsay in the film circle is that Jr NTR shot for a couple of days for Devara in the last 2 and a half months. The shoot is not progressing as they initially planned, with delayed music and possible reshoots affecting the planned schedule of its release. Another factor that comes into play here is that the RRR star has been attached to star opposite Hrithik Roshan in War 2. The YRF spyverse film will soon go on the floors and Jr NTR may have to opt for one project over the other thus affecting Devara.
