Earlier, director Koratala Siva had revealed that the film will be a two-part release in order to do justice to its meticulously detailed storytelling.

Taking to social media, Koratala said in a video where he mixed Telugu and English: “The film is set against the forgotten lands of coastal India and the canvas is too big. As we started shooting the film, the canvas revealed itself and started getting bigger and bigger. Every character in the film has its own weight and they need to be explored and established in depth and in detail, which we can’t justify in one part.”

Concluding his message, he said: “So, we decided to tell this big story and canvas in two parts. The story won’t change in shape but will thrive in scale. One of the biggest canvases ever of ‘Devara’ will be done in two parts and April 5, 2024, is just the beginning.”

The film is produced by Yuvasudha Arts and NTR Arts, and presented by Nandamuri Kalyana Ram. (IANS)
