Devdas completed 16 years today and Madhuri Dixit was overwhelmed
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Devdas completes 16 years today and Madhuri Dixit shared a throwback picture from the sets of the film, which also features her co-star Shah Rukh Khan and the director. Mr Bhansali appears to be explaining a scene to Shah Rukh, who played the titular role, and Madhuri, who played the role of courtesan Chandramukhi, who was completely devoted to Devdas. "Throwback to #Devdas which will always be a film very close to my heart. From working with all the talented actors and technicians, to the dances, to wearing some of the finest outfits and excellent performances. It was so much fun to be a part of this beautifully crafted film #16YearsOfDevdas," Madhuri captioned it. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan played the role of Paro, the third spoke in the love triangle.
Devdas, which released in 2002, is an adaptation of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay's novel of the same name. In 1955, director Bimal Roy made a film on the same novel with Dilip Kumar as the eponymous Devdas, Suchitra Sen as Paro and Vyjayanthimala as Chandramukhi.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's version of Devdas won five National Awards including the popular film award. It was also India's entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars and BAFTA in 2003.
