Sudhir Mishra’s upcoming film Daasdev, featuring Richa Chadha, Aditi Rao Hydari and Rahul Bhat in the lead roles is set to release on March 9.
Daasdav is an upcoming modern day adaptation of Chandra Chattopadhyay’s classic novel, Devdas.
The film’s first poster, which was released today (February 2), looks intriguing and features the three lead actors with a Mount Rushmore like figure carved out of the supporting cast in the background.
Daasdev is said to be based on the popular characters Dev, Paaro and Chandramukhi and will showcase the life of these characters in a modern time.
Interestingly, this is the fourth adaptation of the classic novel with Devdas (1955), Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Devdas (2002) and Dev D (2009) the other three versions.
Mishra’s version of the classic novel also features Saurabh Shukla, Anurag Kashyap, Vipin Singh and Vineet Singh in supporting roles.
The first official poster of the film is quite appealing and it will be interesting to see how Mishra’s Daasdev is different from Kashyap’s Dev D, which was another modern day version of the classic.
