Devi stars nine actresses including Kajol, Neha Dhupia, Shruti Haasan, Neena Kulkarni, Mukta Barve, Sandhya Mhatre, Rama Joshi, Shivani Raghuvanshi, and Yashaswini Dayama.
Speaking of the film, Kajol, in an interview with news agency PTI, said, "I think you definitely need to raise your voice. I don't think you need to be so very vehement about it but I do believe we all need to start up and debate. Don't scream about it, yell about it. But talk about it. Make your statement in the most logical, practical manner possible. That's where we are lacking,"
Devi is a story of nine women who navigate through the sisterhood that has been thrust upon them by circumstances. The short film is directed by Priyanka Banerjee and produced by Electric Apples Entertainment for Large Short Films.
