Ravi Kissan steps into Shahrukh’s shoes

Bhojpuri superstar Ravi Kissan is all set to play Devdas in a Bhojpuri remake of the super hit film. Bhagyashree of ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ fame will play Paro but the role of Chandramuki is yet to be decided. Most probably, Shweta Tiwari of the popular TV serial ‘Kasauti Zindagi Ki’ will portray the character.

This would be Bhagyashree’s second Bhojpuri flick. “She was earlier seen in the film called Janam Janam Ka Saath which includes star cast like Manoj Tiwari and Nagma. She seems to be excited to play the role of Paro and make it big for herself in Bhopuri Cinema,” adds the source.

Buzz is that Jackie Shroff will be approached to play Chunni Babu as his work in Bhansali’s Devdas has been appreciated by the audience. The shooting will kick start in December after Ravi becomes free from his other assignments.

‘Devdas’ has been made into many languages and every time it has got awesome response at the box office. Let’s see whether the Bhojpuri ‘Devdas’ will be equally effective or not.
