I saw this TV serial on Doordarsha. Even though it was black and white i saw each and every emotion very clearly. The story of this girl called phoolwanti is story of struggle that had been part of every women of a particular community. In Maharastra they are known as Kalawant in Andhra Pradesh similar word was Kalavantalu Kalawantalu etc.
However there was a system of Devdasi in many parts of our India. Due to English we have to write Devadasi?. I saw a hindi film on a story of devedasi was shown. That was based in a village of Maharastra. I think Mausami ji was the lead actor in that film.
