Ajay Devgn turns a year older today, and as a treat to his fans on his 50th birthday, the Singham actor unveiled the trailer of his upcoming film De De Pyaar De. The film also features Alok Nath who was accused of sexual harassment by TV producer Vinta Nanda a couple of months ago.
At the trailer launch of the film, when De De Pyaar De producer Luv Ranjan was quizzed about Nath, Ajay intervened saying, "This is not the right place to talk about it." Adding more to it, PTI quoted Ajay as saying, "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)."
Talking about the trailer, the film promises to be a fun-filled ride into middle-age crisis, at the cost of Ajay's character. The film revisits the trope of an older man falling in love with a younger woman but will seek to differ on the basis of some strong character performances by Alok Nath and Jimmy Sheirgill.
The trailer opens with Ajay meeting with a shrink (Jaffrey), since he believes he is in love with a girl half his age, played by Rakul Preet. Love blossoms fast between the two and Ajay takes her home to the family-- a domineering father, a doting mother and two misbehaved and foul mouthed kids. The whole family can't help but address the elephant in the room--the age difference. Enter Tabu, his ex-wife, and things go for a spin.
Ajay is caught between his loyalty for Rakul Preet and Tabu, while he tries to move away from his ever-vigilant and sarcastic family.
Directed by Akiv Ali, the film releases on May 17.
