At a time where there is cut-throat competition in Hindi cinema, there have been some names who have set friendship goals that go beyond box-office rivalry. With Friendship Day all set to be celebrated on Sunday, here are a few names that have redefined friendship goals in the Hindi film industry.
After sharing a glimpse of the characters, the makers of Devi has finally released the first look poster of the all-women short-film on Thursday. The movie has an ensemble star cast featuring Kajol, Shruti Haasan, Neha Dhupia, Neena Kulkarni, Mukta Barve, Sandhya Mhatre, Rama Joshi, Shivani Raghuvanshi, and Yashaswini Dayama.
Devi is Kajol and Shruti’s first short film ever and the movie was shot in just two days.
In the poster, one can see the mid-close-up shot of all the nine powerful women in a monochrome tone. The title of the film is written with red paint at the top of the poster.
Sharing the powerful poster on her official Instagram handle, Kajol wrote, “A tale of nine women navigating through an unusual sisterhood thrust upon them by circumstance. The teaser of our powerful short film drops on 24th February 2020 (sic).”
