Ajay Devgn, Tabu and Rakulpreet Singh starrer De De Pyaar De is all set to hit the theaters and woo its fans with a unique love triangle. The trailer and songs of the film have already created quite a buzz among the viewers. However, the censor board has asked the makers of the film to make 3 changes including the replacement of an alcohol bottle from Rakulpreet’s hands with a bouquet of flowers. According to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), the first cut comes at just 10 minutes into the film. The visual of the heroine holding “alcohol bottle” has been replaced with those of her holding a flower bouquet in the much popular song Vaadi Sharaban.
The second cut comes around halfway into the movie when the dialogue ‘performance better hoti hai’ has been asked to delete along with the corresponding visual. The third and final cut comes just a few minutes later and the visuals and dialogue “Manju ji ke aalu O ho ho …wahi ache hain..” , “ki yeh sab jhoot hain” have been deleted.
De De Pyaar De witnessed itself surrounded by a pool of controversies after the trailer popped up and showed Alok Nath in the film. Since the Sanskari actor was accused of sexual harassment, his presence in the film was largely questioned. Ajay Devgn was also accused of supporting the accused actor for his actions. Later, Ajay defended himself on Alok Nath’s involvement in the film, saying, “This film was supposed to be an October 2018 release. The shoot of the film got over by last September. The portions with Mr. Alok Nath were canned by August in Manali. The said portions were shot over 40 days across various sets and an outdoor location with a combination of over 10 actors. By the time the allegations came out (in October 2018) the actors in the film including me had already started work on other films. It would be near impossible to get all the dates and combinations of the several actors in the film and attempt a re-shoot with some other actor replacing Mr Nath. It would also have been a huge monetary loss for the producers. Everyone is aware that film-making is a collaborative process.”
