    There are a number of references to the film Devdas (2002/I) (since Dev D and Devdas (2002/I) are both based on Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay's novel "Devdas"). The film Lennie/Chanda is watching in the bus and later in her room in the brothel where she chooses her name to be Chanda is Devdas (2002/I). Outside the hidden bar in New Delhi that Dev visits, has a poster of Shahrukh Khan lighting a cigarette taken from Devdas (2002/I).

    The MMS video of Chanda when she was a minor Delhi school girl is inspired by the real life MMS video of a minor Delhi school girl which caused a big scandal in India in 2004. Just like Chanda's father in the movie, the real girl's father killed himself.

    Dev.D was going to mark the debut of Amit Trivedi as a music director but due to various reasons Dev.D took time in getting finished and released and by that time Aamir (2008) got released which eventually became his debut as a composer. Anurag Kashyap had actually recommended Amit Trivedi to Raj Kumar Gupta for Aamir.

    Director Danny Boyle helped Anurag Kashyap with the 'tripping away' scenes by introducing him to a special camera he (Boyle) had got from Holland. This let Kashyap show whats going on inside characters mind during the drug shots without actually showing drugs.

    It’s been reported that Sudhir Mishra , the director of ‘Aur Devdas’, is shelving his project after watching ‘Dev. D’. According to the director, Anurag Kashyap ’s ‘Dev.D’ is so brilliant that to make another movie on the same subject doesn’t make any sense.:-)
