Ajay Devgn, Rakul Preet and Tabu starrer De De Pyaar De has hit the theaters today. But, ahead of the film’s release, CBFC suggested the makers to replace an alcohol bottle with a bouquet of flowers in the song ‘Vaddi Sharaban’.
On its official website, CBFC mentioned that the film was granted a U/A certificate on May 7 after three alterations or cuts.
“Deleted the visuals where (the) heroine holds (an) alcohol bottle and replaced (it) with (the) heroine holding (a) flower bouquet … in the song ‘Vaddi sharaban’,” read the details of the cut. Two more visuals and dialogues have been cut.

One was around half way into the movie. The dialogue “performance better hoti hai” along with the visual have been cut. The final cut involved the visuals and dialogue “Manju ji ke aalu O ho ho… wahi ache hain…” and “ki yeh sab jhoot hain”.
De De Pyaar De has been in the centre of controversies ever since the trailer of the film came out. Ajay Devgn received a lot of flak for working with #MeToo accused Alok Nath in De De Pyaar De. But the 50-year-old backed Alok Nath saying, “Jinki aap baat kar rahe hai woh film uske pehle complete hui.”
The film is about a 50-year-old man’s (played by Ajay Devgn) relationship with a 26-year-old girl (played by Rakul Preet). Tabu is playing the role of Ajay’s ex-wife in the film.
Directed by Akiv Ali, ‘De De Pyaar De’ is an urban rom-com, produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Luv Ranjan and Ankur Garg. The film also features Alok Nath.
