Of the film, Sudhir Mishra said, "I think it's my right to use any work, everything is my heritage, so I can play with it as long as I admit it. I admit that I took Devdas, I took the three characters Dev, Paro, and Chandramukhi. As I was working, Shakespeare intruded and I allowed him to, what could I do? Ultimately it became a film about power as it gets into the way of love," reports Hindustan Times.
1955's Devdas was directed by Bimal Roy and featured veteran actors Dilip Kumar and Vyjayanthimala while the 2002 Devdas was directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, in which Shah Rukh Khan featured as Devdas, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as Paro and Madhuri Dixit played the character of Chandramukhi. The films were a big success and received several awards.
