The trailer of Ajay Devgn starrer De De Pyaar De has released and the audience have deemed it entertaining. However, there’s still something that most viewers, especially women don’t seem to be going well with. The trailer of the film features Alok Nath along with Ajay, Rakul Preet Singh, Tabu and others. The actor was accused of sexual harassment under #MeToo movement earlier last year. Even Ajay was asked to comment on Alok’s presence in the film at the trailer launch event.
Ajay, who was also celebrating his 50th birthday at the event, reacted to Alok’s presence in his film and revealed that his scenes were shot way before then the allegations were made. He said, “This is not the right place to talk about it. And the movie was completed prior to it (sexual harassment allegations against Alok Nath).” Watch him saying the same here:
Alok Nath was accused by the producer of his TV show Vinta Nanda. However, a Mumbai sessions court ended the matter by saying that he ‘may have been falsely accused of rape’ by the woman. The other prominent names that came under the scanner during the movement were Sajid Khan, Nana Patekar, Vikas Bahl, Kailash Kher and Anu Malik among others.
Alok Nath’s scene in the trailer has also created a stir online. Twitterati have fumed seeing the actor still getting work after being accused of sexual misconduct. Here’s a Twitter thread:
Meanwhile, De De Pyaar De has Ajay playing the role of a 50-year-old man who’s struggling to lead his life between his 26-year-old girlfriend and his ex-wife. The day he makes his girlfriend meet his family members and his ex-wife, the troubles begin in his life. Even his kids refuse to accept his new relationship. All of this brings comedy and create confusions around. Produced by Luv Ranjan, the film is slated to hit the screens on May 17.
