Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay's celebrated tragicromance novel, Devdas has inspired 11 films in Hindi, Bengali and Tamil by many renowned directors. And it continues to enthuse many like writer Nasreen Munni Kabir, whose latest book, The Dialogue of Devdas: Bimal Roy's Immortal Classic will be launched in the city today.
While dialogues from Roy's 1955 classic are immortalised in this book, it is another Devdas, Shah Rukh Khan, who will release and perhaps even read out a few dialogues at the launch today in presence of the director's family. Co-published by Om Books International and Hyphen Films, the book presents the dialogue in a four-language format. Roy's children, Rinki, Yashodhara, Aparajita and Joy have written a chapter each in this book.
