Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s Bengali novella Devdas has been made into several films, and this 2002 Bollywood drama based on the same story and having the same name stars Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit in the lead roles. Madhuri as Chandramukhi was well appreciated and her dance moves, choreographed by Saroj Khan became the talk of the town, as Devdas remained a classic and Chandramukhi, as the courtesan, timeless.
