    In an exclusive interview with mid-day, Kajol spoke about her experience of working with an all-women cast. She said, "When the script came my way, I thought it would be so much fun working with [eight] different women. I loved the statement that the film is making. Also, it's such a joy to closely collaborate with so many women. Nobody discussed PMS at all on set."

  • Manish Malhotra, Sonali Bendre

    Talking about the character she is playing in the film, the actor said, " 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."

    Karan looked dashing (as always) in his yellow printed sweatshirt and black pants. We certainly loved how his black sunglasses enhanced his attire.

  • Neena Kulkarni, Devi special screening

    Neena Kulkarni attended the screening in a beautiful blue saree. In a recent interview, Neena spoke about her role in the short film. She said, "The script is moving and layered. I chose to be a part of it because it makes a strong comment on one of the most horrific crimes committed against women till date."
