Total earnings De De Pyaar De, starring Ajay Devgn, Tabu and Rakul Preet Singh, now stands at Rs 50.83 crore at the box office. Strong word-of-mouth and good performances by the actors are driving the audience to theatres to watch the film.
Movie critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "DeDePyaarDe crosses Rs50 cr on Day 5... Trends strongly on weekdays... Fri 10.41 cr [incl Thu previews], Sat 13.39 cr, Sun 14.74 cr, Mon 6.19 cr, Tue 6.10 cr. Total: ₹ 50.83 cr. India biz. #DDPD".
De De Pyaar De earlier courted controversy for featuring Alok Nath, accused of rape during India’s #MeToo movement. “Everyone is aware that film-making is a collaborative process. The decision to replace Nath could never have been mine alone. In this case, I would have to go with the joint-decision of the entire unit. Not to forget, I could not have brought the entire combination of actors back or put up sets again for a 40-day re-shoot because this would mean doubling the budget, which again wasn’t my call to make. It would have to be the call of the makers. Had circumstances played out even slightly differently, I would have pushed for a different combination of actors. Unfortunately, this was not to be,” the actor had said in a statement at that time.
