The first look of the movie Daas Dev was released on Friday, starring Richa Chadda, Rahul Bhat and Aditi Rao Hydari. Sudhir Misra's upcoming Bollywood film Daas Dev is a modern flip of the Bengali classic novel of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay 'Devdas.' The film will hit the theatres on March 9th, 2018.

According to the Director Sudhir Mishra, this movie would be similar to the original Devdas but will more be intoxicated by power rather than alcohol.

While talking about the genre of the movie Sudhir Mishra said, "'Devdas' was about intoxication and 'Daas Dev' is about intoxication too. But here, that intoxication means something different. I think power is the only addiction in the world which is legal but more lethal which takes lives of many people."

"So, if the audience is coming in the theatres with the expectations of watching the same and earlier versions of 'Devdas', they shouldn't expect that," he added.

Fukrey fame actress Richa Chadda is the 'Paro' in the new political thriller 'Daas Dev' where Rahul Bhat is playing 'Dev' and Aditi Rao Hydari is playing 'Chandni'(Chandramukhi).

Set in the hinterlands of India, Daasdev aims to bring some refreshing avatars and is a love saga set amid the political background of Uttar Pradesh. The film is said to follow a path “contrary to the plot of the classic novel and is a romantic thriller that talks about addiction to power and love."

Daas Dev is the reverse journey of Devdas.
