Nandamuri Kalyan Ram's career is set for an upward trajectory with an exciting lineup of movies, one of which is titled 'Devil.' However, this film found itself embroiled in controversy when the director's name was removed from the poster.
Originally led by Naveen Medaram, creative differences prompted the team to erase his credit, with the film's producer, Abhishek Nama, claiming directorial duties. This move led to legal action from Naveen, adding more complexity and negativity to the film's journey.
Unfortunately, 'Devil' faces another challenge—struggling to secure deals for its theatrical release. Despite ongoing post-production efforts, the producer hasn't finalized theatrical arrangements due to the controversy's negative impact on the movie's buzz.
Adding to the mix, Samyuktha Menon joins the cast as the female lead in this period-centric film, where Kalyan Ram portrays a spy. The film's shooting isn't complete, yet post-production has commenced, causing concerns about the delay in finalizing theatrical business deals.
Overall, 'Devil' faces a twofold challenge – the legal tussle resulting from the director's removal and the struggle to generate positive buzz necessary for closing theatrical deals. These issues cast a shadow over the movie's prospects despite its intriguing premise and cast lineup.
