DJ's Creative Unit has finally zeroed in on the lead faces to essay the roles of Devdas, Paro and Chandramukhi in their adaptation of Devdas for Zee TV.

Our readers will very well remember that TellyBuzz had given exclusive information on the part of cast finalized for the show. We had said that Iqbal Khan is all set to portray the Devdas of television while Binny Sharma of Dance India Dance fame has been roped in to essay Chandramukhi's role.

Additi Gupta was offered the role of Paro initially, but the actress expressed her displeasure in doing it. And now the production house and channel have got their Paro in Anjali Abrol who was seen last in Raja Ki Ayegi Baraat.

A little birdie tells us, "Anjali Abrol has been finalized to play Paro. Her simple yet royal look in her earlier show on Star Plus has caught the eye of DJ's Creative Unit. The production house feels that Anjali fits perfectly in the role of Paro, and the actress has also given her nod for the role".

As reported earlier, the show will see veteran actor Aroona Irani playing the male lead's mother.

We tried contacting Anjali, but she remained unavailable.

Now that the show has got its lead faces, the production house and channel expect to start shoot very soon. The show will launch in August at a prime time slot.

Guess this is a welcome news for fans of Anjali!!
