Originally produced:
Devdas (Shah Rukh Khan) and Parvati (Aishwarya Rai) have shared a special bond since childhood and is put to the test when Devdas is sent away to England to further his studies. Parvati (or Paro) waits for him and lights a diya signifying her undying love for Devdas. When he finally returns Paroþs world lights up again. Their love is fully supported by Paroþs mother Sumitra (Kiron Kher) who is full of life and joy.
However thanks to a meddling sister-in-law (Ananya), the love story takes an unfortunate turn after Devdasþ mother Kaushalya (Smita Jaykar) insults Sumitra and refuses to accept Paro as her daughter-in-law.
The hurt Sumitra arranges Paroþs wedding to Zamindar Bhuvan (Vijayendra Ghatge), a rich widower. Hurt by the turn of events Devdas turns to his college friend Chunni Babu (Jackie Shroff) who opens Devdasþ eyes to the world of alcohol and prostitutes. Enter Chandramukhi (Madhuri Dixit) a popular tawaif, who falls in love with the righteous Devdas. Sadly even her love cannot save the doomed Devdas who quickly becomes an alcoholic. The pain of his lost love can only be numbed by alcohol and it is that alcohol which ultimately consumes Devdasþ life.
