Ajay Devgn faces backlash on social media for working with Alok Nath in ‘De De Pyaar De’
We are living in the times of social media and Bollywood celebrities invariably find themselves in trouble. Ajay Devgn has turned 50 today. Time flies, doesn’t it? The handsome and seasoned campaigner, on the occasion of his birthday, released the trailer of his upcoming film ‘De De Pyaar De’.
Now, ‘De De Pyar De’ also stars Alok Nath. The veteran actor has been accused of sexual harassment amid the #MeToo movement.
During the trailer launch, producer of the said film Luv Ranjan was asked to comment on Alok Nath being a part of the film. But Ajay asked him to get down from the stage and answered it himself. Ajay said, “This is not the right place to talk about it. And the movie was completed prior to it.”
Now, social media is quite miffed over Alok Nath’s presence in the film and hit out at Ajay Devgn.
While women continue to be disbelieved, ridiculed and shoved back into silence, men accused of sexual violence continue to find work. @ajaydevgn @itsBhushanKumar I hope you know Alok Nath has been accused of rape and an FIR filed. Disgusting that he’s part of De De Pyar De.

De de pyaar se trailer is anyway condescending on so many levels, but the worst part is Ajay Devgan & Luv Ranjan team being highly insensitive towards the #Metoo .It has the scumbag Alok Nath in a full blown character. In spite of everything they have the gal to go ahead with it.

Shame on @ajaydevgn for defending Alok Nath. They could have given him the boot post the allegations & FIR. I hate when celebs say “this is not the right platform to discuss”. Issues such as this deserved to be discussed on every platform. #DeDePyaarDeTrailer @IndiaMeToo https://t.co/fA5DGDOczq

#DeDePyaarDeTrailer is looks entertaining stuffs. But why #Metoo accused people like Luv Ranjan and Alok Nath are still getting to work? Why so much outrage for Vikas Bahl only? Not for them now? Why so much hypocrisy?
