Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s novel Devdas had been a source of inspiration of Indian film makers of all languages. Nine film versions have been made so far including a silent one, the last being that of Sanjay Leela Bansali starring Shah Rukh Khan and Aiswarya Rai.
Anurag Kashyap is now ready with the 10th version, titled Dev D, a fresh, contemporary take on Devdas produced by UTV Bindaas.
This film has Abhay Deol in the lead role while Mahi Gill and Kalki Koechlin make their debut as the female leads.
Dev D is releasing on February 6, 2009.
