Veteran filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali once appeared on Simi Garewal’s chat show and was asked about one of his finest films, Devdas. Simi asked that you have said there are things that matter to you in this film, and it was not taking the novel and making the film. The director was quick to respond and said, “Yes, I think Devdas started off when my father died. He was an alcoholic and died. My mother no necessarily got very well with him, I had seen that, but in the dying moment, he stretched out his hand, so in that dying moment, he reached out to my mother. I realised my mother sacrificed 22 years of her for this moment, and that’s what fascinated me, and that’s how Devdas started.”
