Actor Vipin Sharma, who made his debut as a strict father to a dyslexic child in ‘Taare Zameen Par‘ will be seen as a ruthless yet vulnerable politician in his next called Daas Dev directed by Sudhir Mishra which is a modern day adaptation of Sarat Chandra’s DevDas.
With actors Rahul Bhat, Richa Chadha and Aditi Rao Hyadri essaying the role of Dev, Paro and Chandni respectively, Vipin’s character “Ramashraya Shukla” is loosely based on Chunni Lal but with a twist.
Throwing light on his character, Sharma says “Daas Dev is a highly gripping film and I play an interesting role of a politician who has his own complexed notions and feels it’s absolutely fine to shed blood for the welfare of your people. An intense and a complex character indeed.”
Set in Uttar Pradesh, with a Political backdrop, the film is about addiction, power and love.
Contrary to original DevDas the character of Dev in Daas Dev moves from alcohol to power and he discovers that power is a far more lethal addiction.
Das Dev is slated to releases on 9th March across the country.
