The film will be made in 2024 and released in 2025. This is not a spontaneous decision, our writer Srikanth pitched the idea to us last December. It’s an exciting plot,” he said.
Teasing fans about the plot, he said, “One interesting thing about Devil 2 is that the film will show both the 1940s and 2000s era. It’s going to be exciting.”
