Asked if the film glorified terrorism, Dev said, "On the contrary, we have sought to communicate in the film, how to destroy terrorism."
More than the terrorists, their conspirators, who have used them and built up terror networks, are the bigger threats, the bigger terrorists, he said.
Asked if his lead role as 'Kabir' had negative shades, Dev said, "You may say so."
"There had not been much experimentation with negative roles in the Bengali film industry and hence we get typecast with roles. Hope films like 'Kabir' will break such stereotypes," he said.
The film talks about not to be swayed by hearsay or be influenced by others who can use us but assess and check facts before reacting.
"The storyline of Kabir was prompted by many real life incidents including a case where the rumoured attack on a girls' hostel led to riots but ultimately it was known, there had been no such attacks in the first place," Dev said.
Dev, who had two home productions in past, said 'Kabir' had been extensively shot in some real life locations in Mumbai.
