Madhuri Dixit also paid rich tribute to Dilip Kumar, saying “Here’s our ode to #DilipKumar, just like #Devdas, you will continue to live on…forever! #19YearsOfDevdas”.

Dilip Kumar and Suchitra Sen feature in the original Devdas, which was released in 1955.

Devdas was the most costly Hindi film ever made when it was released. Devdas became a massive project, costing over INR 500 million (Rs50 crore).

Bharat Shah, the film’s producer, was imprisoned in 2001 after it was discovered that one of his films had been financed by the “underworld.” Devdas was still in production at the time, and its prospects looked bleak.

The film’s elaborate sets contributed significantly to its escalating costs. These sets took seven to nine months to create.
