Twitterati slams Ajay Devgn for Alok Nath’s presence in film despite #MeToo allegations

Ajay Devgn turned 50 on Monday and treated his fans with the trailer of his upcoming Luv Ranjan directorial film De De Pyaar De. While fans loved to the actor back in the comic role, Alok Nath’s presence in the film didn’t go down well with Twitterati. For the unversed, The Sanskari actor was accused of rape and sexual harassment by Tara writer-producer last year and was even banned by CINTAA. Alok Nath has been kept away from the projects he was doing but when he appeared in De De Pyaar De trailer, netizens lost their cool and slammed Ajay Devgn on the internet.

If Alok Nath’s presence was not enough to raise a storm on the internet, Ajay Devgn’s statement about him triggered them. At the trailer launch when Ajay was asked about Alok Nath, he said, "This is not the right place to talk about it." He added, "And jinki aap baat kar rahe hai woh film uske pehle complete hui (the film was completed before the allegations surfaced against the concerned person)” This made Twitterati even more angry and they bashed the actor for not taking responsibility for it.

While one twitter user wrote, “Shame on Ajay Devgn for defending Alok Nath. They could have given him the boot after allegations and FIR. I hate when celebs say ‘this is not the right platform to discuss’. Issues like this deserved to be discussed on every platform,” another questioned the presence of Alok Nath in the film. Here’s what Twitterati is buzzing with-

De De Pyaar De also features Tabu and Rakul Preet Singh in lead roles and  is directed by Akiv Ali. It releases on May 17. Talking about the film, Ajay Devgn said, "De De Pyaar De is a fun love story. It is a fun film. I don't even know if I have done this kind of film before. But I have had fun doing this film.” He also said, “There is no plot in this film. There is only masti.”
