Lara Dutta and Soha Ali Khan to play Paro and Chandramukhi
[Thu Aug 30, 2007]

Few days before, we had news that Rani Mukherjee would play the role of Paro in Sudhir Mishra's modern-day interpretation of 'Devdas'. But contrary to this, reports have that Lara Dutta has been signed for the role of Devadas's lover Paro.

For the role of Devdas, Shiney Ahuja has already been signed, while Soha Ali Khan has been finalized to play Chandramukhi. Interestingly, Shiney and Soha are also doing Sudhir's next film 'Khoya Khoya Chand'.

Sudhir's modern take on 'Devdas' would not be an exact adaptation of Sarat Chandra's novel. It will have a political twist in the story. And some changes are like: Paro will evolve from a simple, beautiful girl to a politician, while Chandramukhi won't be a dancer but an investment banker.

Pritish Nandy Communications will produce the film.
