After seeing a golden run at the box-office for his last outing Kadai Kutty Singam actor Karthi's next titled Dev directed by debutant Rajath Ravishankar is aiming for a release on January 25 for the Republic Day weekend.
The makers released the first look poster of the film on the eve of Deepavali. The team recently wrapped up the shooting and currently in the post-production stage.
The film has been shot across exotic backdrops of Himalaya and Europe. Apart from this, the film will be shot in exquisitely paradisaical locales of USA as well.
In September, the filmâ€™s crew got stranded in Manali, courtesy landslides and flash floods. The team reached Manali to shoot a brief schedule but they had to abruptly stop shooting, owing to heavy rains. Apparently, this situation had resulted in a loss of nearly Rs 1.5 crore.
