Sudhir Mishra picked up the topic for his directorial venture and seems to be all set to deliver as the release date of the film has been revealed as 20th April 2018.
To add to the jubilation, Shringar films have picked up the distribution of the film with a pan India approach in mind to hit as many cinemas as possible all over India.

My part as a director is to put all my energies into the creative process of making the movie and doing justice to the script. As far as business decisions, strategies and release dates are concerned, Shringar Films have a bigger vision for the movie and we know we are in great hands. We are excited to bring DAAS DEV to a larger audience”.
