Remakes are never easy. But Sanjay Leela’s Bhansali’s take on the 1917 Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay novel, that saw Dixit step into Vyjayanthimala’s shoes as Chandramukhi, was spectacular beyond words. One of the most expensive Bollywood film of its time, ‘Devdas’ featured magnificent dance routines, exquisite sets and costumes, and one of the most good-looking cast, with Aishwarya Rai as ‘Paro’ and Shah Rukh Khan as the new-age ‘Devdas’.
