Mumbai, July 14 (IANS) It's an incarnation of the classic love-torn couple Devdas and Paro as never seen before - fighting each other as political adversaries in Sudhir Mishra's version of "Devdas" that goes on the floor in August.
"It's more like William Shakespeare's 'Hamlet' as applied to the politics of India," Mishra told IANS. He will shoot "Devdas" in the deserts of Rajasthan.
"I want those vast stretches of sand for dramatic emphasis," said Mishra who has made films like "Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi" and "Chameli".
The truth is never far away from Mishra's cinema. He now wants to make a new genre of cinema, what he calls a 'mockumentary'
