      He had said, "Devdas is more than a film. It is a tribute to my parents' love. "Devdas is the story of my father (Navin Bhansali) and mother (Leela Bhansali). The starting point is when my father died of cirrhosis in the hospital."

      "My mother loved him immensely but he never expressed his love for her. And when he was dying he came out of his state of coma and extended his hand to her. I realised it was just this one moment that my mother had lived for 25 or 30 years of her life. She never realised she was in love with this man who never expressed his feelings," added the Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam director.

      Devdas, a tale of love and loss, was adaptation of the classic novel by Sarat Chandra Chatterjee of the same name. Made on a budget of Rs 50 crore, the film had minted Rs 100 crore at the box office.
