The makers of Jr NTR's Devara on Wednesday have taken to social media to unveil the first look of Saif Ali Khan in the film, on the occasion of the latter's birthday. Saif is essaying a character named Bhaira in the film.
The first look comprises him with long, dishevelled hair, sporting a black shirt. We see the visual of two fishing boats with people riding choppy waves in the foreground along with green hills and smog in the top left side of the background.
