Earlier speaking to Firstpost, the director had this to say about why he is making Dev, "Feel-good films were made by several legendary Tamil filmmakers like Balu Mahendra and Mani Ratnam. They are my inspirations to pen a story like Dev. Basically, I’m a traveller and in fact, I came to films because this profession would help me to visit many unexplored places. Even while writing the story of Dev, I visited similar locations where I shot later for the film. For example, if there is a scene placed in the backdrop of snow-clad mountain, I visited a similar place and penned the script. But what was difficult in executing a film travelling in various locations is people management. Thankfully, my production team pulled it off with a great ease."
