Mumbai: National Award winning filmmaker Sudhir Mishra is all set to “flip” the iconic story of Devdas for his upcoming political-drama “Dasdev”.
The film, which stars Richa Chaddha, Aditi Rao Hydari and Rahul Bhat, of “Ugly” fame, will have references to author Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s classic novel ‘Devdas’ and even playwright William Shakespeare.
“I am making a film called ‘Dasdev’ which is a political film set in Uttar Pradesh. For this one, I am playing around Devdas and flipping it a lot. When I was working, Shakespeare sort of entered the film a lot. So it kind of owes it debt to Sarat Chandra and William Shakespeare,” Mishra told PTI.
The “Hazaaron Khwaishien Aisi” director revealed that the movie will have filmmaker Anurag Kashyap in a small role.
The film was earlier titled “Aur Devdas”, but was changed to “Dasdev” as Mishra says, “I was flipping ‘Devdas’ around so I flipped the title too.”
The film has wrapped up its shooting and will release in February or March next year.
