Fans of the two were in awe of their beauty. “This is where bollywood peaked,” read a comment on Reddit. “Aww Madhuri's smile melted me,” commented another. “Gorgeous women both of them! I will say to me Madhuri has always been the most classic Indian beauty I’ve ever seen. Her smile is just so captivating and magnetic. She reminds me of old age actresses like madhubala or Marylin Monroe. Her in khalnayak remains the most beauty women I’ve ever seen,” wrote another person. “The brightness of maduhri’s smile needs to be scientifically studied,” read a comment.

The film also had a grand premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. It was attended by Aishwarya, Shah Rukh, and Bhansali. Aishwarya's yellow saree look from the premiere has been etched in Bollywood history as one of her most stunning looks ever.

Shah Rukh played Devdas Mukerjee in the musical, grand retelling of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay's epic novel. He was a zamindar's son with huge ego and a traumatic childhood, who loses the love of his life, Paro (Aishwarya) due to his pride. As she is married off to another man, Dev suffers a heartache so horrible, he nurses it with never-ending stream of alcohol and visits to ‘tawaif’ Chandramukhi's (Madhuri) court. Aishwarya and Madhuri's song Dola Re Dola from the film was a massive hit too.

The film won multiple awards and established Bhansali as one of the most prominent directors in Bollywood. Devdas was lauded for its grand sets, stunning costumes, memorable performances and beautiful songs.
