Talking about the project, Kajol told Mid Day, “I couldn’t have chosen a better subject for my first short film. My character, Jyoti, is vastly different from me, but uncannily, we share a lot of similarities. In today’s times when gender discrimination, abuse, and violence is being spoken about vociferously, films like Devi are far more relevant.”
Kajol's first digital project Devi is helmed by debutante director Priyanka Banerjee, bankrolled by Niranjan lyengar and Ryan Stephen's Electric Apples Entertainment for Large Short Films and will release on March 2.
