Anurag Kashyap, who is all set to direct his tentatively titled
film Dev.D, has finally zeroed down on the actors to play the roles
of Chandramukhi and Paro. Both of these roles are being played by
two newcomers Kalki and Mahi, respectively.
This film which is a modern-day take on Sarat Chandra's novel,
'Devdas', is being produced by UTV Spotboy and is being written and
directed by Anurag himself. Dev.D is very much unlike the original,
wherein the main lead Abhay Deol is a hypocrite who drowns himself
in self-pity and is a man who cannot stand up for himself.
is scheduled to go on floors next week, and will be shot in London,
Punjab and Delhi. Anurag is said to be leaving for London in three
days and the rest of the crew is supposed to join him after that.
It's going to be a start-finish affair, as the film is expected to
be to getting completed by April.
