The Dev D Ending You Never Saw

Abhay Deol celebrates 15 years of Dev D, directed by Anurag Kashyap.

He goes back in time to share some interesting thoughts behind the film: ‘I still remember pitching the idea of a contemporary, musical version of Devdas to Anurag, at the Juhu Marriott. The shock and excitement on his face is etched in my memory.

‘My ending was different from what he made though, I had Dev get shot by the cops outside Paro’s house because by the end of the film he’s a drug dealer. But the happy ending gave my character redemption, and it clearly worked.

‘I still wonder where we would be had we killed him off. Dev the drug dealer, the original chauvinist, he was always far beyond redemption for me from the start lol!

‘Either way, I have never pitched another idea to anyone in the industry since then. Maybe I should start focusing on development once again?’
