In ALTBalaji's Dev DD, all the main character names share similarity with Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay 's novel Devdas. As it's adaptation of it with gender swap. Like Devdas became Devika, Paro became Parth but there was no Chandramukhi analogous but we instead got Anurag which share nothing similar to Chandramukhi. Even the kiss between Chandni and Devika did hinted Chandni being the Chandramukhi of this story but it didn't work out.

Why Anurag's name was not analogous to respective Devdas character Chandramukhi? Was that a nod to Dev.D's director Anurag Kashyap? As DEv.D film was also a bold attempt to adapt Devdas in modern culture.
