Director Sudhir Mishra who has given Indian cinema some of the most incredible and memorable films is all set with his next directorial venture, ‘DaasDev’. Starring Richa Chadha as Paro, Aditi Rao Hydari as Chandni and Rahul Bhat as Dev, the film is a modern flip of the Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s classic novel ‘DevDas’ set in the modern time of hinterland India against the backdrop of politics.

Sudhir Mishra has previously given us path-breaking films like ‘Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi’, ‘Yeh Saali Zindagi’, ‘Khoya Khoya Chand’ and with someone of his repute helming this flipped tale of classic story will surely be something to look forward to. The film boasts of incredible cast including Richa Chadha who is known for her performances in films like ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, ‘Masaan’, ‘Fukrey’; Rahul Bhat who is known for his extensive work in the TV industry and also for his lead role in Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Ugly’ and the extremely beautiful actress Aditi Rao Hydari who was last seen in her powerful role in ‘Bhoomi’, are all coming together for this classic adaptation.

Presented by Storm pictures and produced by Saptarishi Cinevision production, ‘DaasDev’ is all set to release on 16th February 2018 in theatres worldwide.
