Anurag Kashyap's much hyped DEV D releases this weekend. While there is good enough curiosity and buzz surrounding the film, one does notice the presence of 'drugs' and 'sex' - a potent mix that gives the film a violent feel.

Abhay doesn't deny that there is an intrinsic emotional violence in the film. ''We are not being visibly explicit in depicting violence and abuse. But yes Devdas is about violence. The story does have elements of abuse.''

CHECK OUT: Abhay Deol enjoyed being a Devdas!

He comments though that the book by itself carries strong and violent content and they are not doing anything spectacularly different from what the book says. ''The book by itself is like that. Violence and sex is inherent to 'Devdas'. Author Saratchandra himself felt that his writing was harsh in the book.''

The film seems to be a lot more violent than one would have imagined Devdas to be? ''If you read it, you will find that sexual tension is quite implicit there as well. It is very much in the background and we haven't added something on our own'', he defends.

He is surprised though that people feel DEV D brings with it a good dose of sexual element. ''I guess we see a lot more of it in the item numbers of Bollywood'', he laughs, ''This is why I have always maintained that there are regular Bollywood movies and then there is a film like ours. You will see what I mean once you will see DEV D.''
