Ekta Kapoor’s app ALTBalaji seems to be the talk of the town nowadays. The app launches today and the telly queen’s initiative to step outside the saas-bahu serials box is a bold and much needed move for us.
With original yet brazen content to a certain extent, Dev DD is a show directed by the talented director Ken Ghosh(of Chance Pe Dance and Fida fame) starring Asheema Vardaan, Sanjay Puri and several others.
The director who wanted to showcase the show or his close family and friends, held a screening yesterday and the who’s who of television showed up!
Right from Asheema Vardaan, to Sanjay Suri, Kishwer Merchant & Suyyash Rai, Akhil Kapoor, Urvashi Dholakia, Sudha Chandran, Jay Soni, and many more showed up to witness history in the making with this brazen and much awaited show.
Absolutely in awe of the way in which Ken Ghosh portrayed such sensitive topics in such a beautiful manner, the celebrities were all praises for the show and were overheard vouching that it would be the next big thing!

DEVDD Concept Note
‘Dev DD‘ is a web-series about wild-child Devika’s search for love, sex and everything else in between – like betrayal, heartbreak, self-destruction and redemption.
Devika Dharmendra Dwivedi, 19, is a rebel without a pause. An outsider in her own house and family, she is a modern girl with a sharp tongue, a rock star attitude and the cojones to stand up for her convictions. But Devika is caught in the small-town mentality of Lucknow. At odds with her mother since she is not how ‘good girls’ should be, she is happy with being on her own, until she finds and falls in love with a boy who is just as wild and rebellious as her. But like all love stories, this too has many twists and turns. She is betrayed and, heartbroken, she spirals into a miasma of self-destructive behaviour that includes drinking and lots of senseless sex. But then she finds the love of her life, and her life starts coming back on track. But he is a much older man. And she is someone who cannot be tamed. As cracks start appearing in this greatest love story of her life, will she be able to hold on to the one true thing, or is her life an endless series of escapades full of sex, alcohol but no true love? Devika DD is a web – series that will challenge the notion of a heroine and what a ‘good girl’ is, and have fun while doing that. And it will also be the greatest love story you have ever seen. Of a girl, you have never seen before
