Richa Chadha to step into Paro’s shoes for modern-day ‘Devdas’

Richa Chadha seems to be a roll these days. She appeared in a web series called ‘Inside Edge’ and now we would get to see her in ‘Fukrey Returns’ that would release on December 8. Starring Pulkit Samrat, Richa Chadha, Varun Sharma, Ali Fazal and others, ‘Fukrey Returns’ is the second instalment of ‘Fukrey’. But even before this film makes it to the theatres, here’s the announcement of Richa’s next film.

Richa is all set to be a part of a Sudhir Mishra’s upcoming film ‘Daasdev’. It is a modern-day adaptation of romantic drama ‘Devdas’. Apparently this film was earlier named as ‘Aur Devdas’, but then the makers shifted it to ‘Daasdev’. It was supposed to release in the year 2015, but for some reasons, the release date got postponed.

Talking about this film, Richa has quoted saying, “I am excited that the film is releasing soon. It’s an interesting adaptation. I loved working with Sudhir Mishra. He has mentored so many filmmakers and directed some films that made me want to be an actor when I was growing up.”

The others characters in the film would be played by Aditi Rao Hydari and Rahul Bhat. Aditi would be the modern Chandramukhi while Rahul would be the Daasdev. (Also Read: Revealed! Richa Chadha prefers this secret thing over Twitter!)

We remember how Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai had bought Saratchandra Chattopadhhyay’s ‘Devdas’ to life under the direction of Sanjay Leela Bhansali with their fabulous performance. And now, this romantic drama is going to get a modern twist. It was Aishwarya Rai who had stepped into the shoes of Paro for SLB’s ‘Devdas’ and had enthralled everyone with her splendid performance. Let’s see what does this modern Paro aka Richa Chadha has in store to offer.
