Saratchandra Chattopadhhyay’s classic Devdas has been remade many times and now, Sudhir Mishra too is planning to come up with a modern take on the tragic love story.
The film, which will be titled Daasdev follows a path contrary to the plot of the classic novel but is a fiercely political film that talks about the protagonist’s addiction to power. The film features Richa Chadha as Paro, Aditi Rao Hydari as Chandramukhi and Rahul Bhat as Daasdev. When asked to comment on the same, Richa said, “I am excited that the film is releasing soon. It’s an interesting adaptation. I loved working with Sudhir Mishra. He has mentored so many filmmakers and directed some films that made me want to be an actor when I was growing up.”
Richa will be next seen playing gangster Bholi Punjaban in Fukrey Returns.
