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.
The film 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.
