Anurag Kashyap has reportedly been inspired by MMS circulated sex clips to make Dev D, a modern take on Devdas, with Abhay Deol in the title role, Kalki Koechlin playing Chandramukhi and Mahi Gill as Paro.
Vikas Bahl confirmed that the film is based on the sex-on-camera incident like that of Delhi Public School. The character Liny (Kalki) too is studying in an upmarket school in Delhi and is caught on camera. She eventually goes on to become Chandramukhi, the most desired call girl.
However, there’s a slight twist to the tale. Unlike the DPS girl who was packed off abroad by her scandalised family, Liny is abandoned and forced into isolation.
