Devdas remains an iconic film in Indian cinema. Today, the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed drama completes 17 years. Yes, it was 17 years ago when we got to witness this gem of a movie. It starred Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai as the female leads, while Shah Rukh Khan played the titular role of the love-lorn self-destructing alcoholic. Devdas was one of the first films that put us on the map at the Cannes Film Festival. Well, at least the entire nation came to know what Cannes was all about after the representation. So, we owe that to the film as well. Shah Rukh Khan Dialogues Are a Big Hit This Lok Sabha Elections 2019 Season! Check Out How Govt Takes ‘Devdas’ Route to Promote Voting.
