The childhood friendship between him and Parvati, nick named Paro, had turned into a deep love. Everyone believed that Devdas and Paro will get married. Unfortunately, due to the sheer cast rivalry, the two families got tore apart. Paro’s mother arranged her marriage to a man wealthier than Devdas. Thakur Bhuvan Chaudhry, an older guy and a widower with three grown up children, married Paro. In the meantime, Devdas met a beautiful and talented courtesan named Chandramukhi who reminded Devdas tremendously about Paro by her enchanting dances and marvelous songs.
