The story of ‘Devdas' is based on Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay's 1917 novel of the same name. The plot revolves around Devdas Mukherjee (Shah Rukh), a wealthy law graduate who returns from London to marry his childhood friend Parvati, aka Paro (Aishwarya). But his spiral into drunkenness and subsequent emotional degeneration prompts him to seek sanctuary with the kind-hearted courtesan Chandramukhi (Madhuri) after his own family rejects their marriage.
