Sudhir Mishra has started shooting for his own version of the movie ‘Devdas’ chronicle, titled as ‘Aur Devdas’. He had earlier tweeted saying that he was shooting for a film called ‘Pyaas’ in Lucknow, which created confusion.
This left us wondering, why create confusion for the public? When inquired, Sudhir Mishra validated, “I am shooting ‘Aur Devdas’ in Lucknow with Rahul Bhatt, Richa Chadha and Aditi Rao. ‘Pyaas’ was another film that I was planning.”
Not a good year for Sudhir, as one of his close associate clarifies on his behalf, “Sudhir’s projects have been falling through lately. His most ambitious Big B and Rishi Kapoor starrer ‘Pehle Aap Janab’ failed to take off after months and almost a year of preparation, Sudhir then wanted to make a political thriller. That too never happened. He wanted to take attention away from ‘Devdas’, so he could focus getting it right without prying eyes. ‘Pyaas’ is a film that Sudhir means to make later. He used the title to camouflage his current project.”
