Colors forced to change name of ‘Dev Anand’ show


Colors has been forced to change the name of its upcoming weekend show ‘Dev Anand’ to just ‘Dev’ after getting in legal bother with the legendary actor’s family.

A source told Times Of India, “We received a notice from Dev Anand’s family, which was forwarded to the channel. They must have discussed the matter, following which the show got a new title. We didn’t realize that it would pose such a huge problem.”

Leading actor Ashish Chowdhry told the publication, “It is news to me, too. From what I know, Mr Dev Anand’s family had an issue with his name in the title. To each their own. In my personal view, it’s a tribute to a legendary actor. The name resonates with one and all and that says it all. But I understand the family’s reservations, too. I had changed my handle on a micro-blogging site to my character’s name — Dev Anand Burman. Guess it’s time to change that as well.”

The show was expected to launch this weekend but has been pushed back by a week to Saturday 5th August at 22:00.
