The Male


GLEANING from the per­sona of his su­per­star un­cle Vinod Khanna and tak­ing the charm from his cousins Ak­shaye and Rahul Khanna, Akhil Ka­pur is all set for his dig­i­tal launch in ALT Balaji’s Dev DD. For those of you who don’t re­mem­ber, Akhil stud­ied act­ing and film­mak­ing at the New York Film Academy and made his Bol­ly­wood de­but in Desi Kat­tey along­side Su­nil Shetty. The new­bie will be es­say­ing the role of the leg­endary Paro in the fem­i­nine ver­sion and con­tem­po­rary take on Dev­das. Dev DD, mean­while, has gen­er­ated im­mense cu­rios­ity among the view­ers since its an­nounce­ment. San­jay Suri is to play the male ver­sion of the iconic char­ac­ter of Chan­dra­mukhi. “Dig­i­tal is the present and the fu­ture! When I heard the con­cept, I knew this would be some­thing very in­ter­est­ing. It’s a fun, young and mod­ern twist to a clas­sic story, with its role re­ver­sal. It is dif­fer­ent and quirky, new age and very ex­cit­ing. Play­ing the male ver­sion of Paro with my per­sonal touches was quite in­ter­est­ing,” says an ex­cited Akhil. Well, we are equally ex­cited for the dash­ing young man!
