De DePyaar De: What Censor Board Found Disturbing In The Movie?
De DePyaar De is a romantic comedy by Ajay Devgn and Tabu. But the biggest attraction of the movie is going to be Rakul Preet Singh who belongs to Telugu and Tamil film industry and working with Ajay Devgn for the first time. CBFC passed the movie but with three cuts.
Ashish Mehra (Ajay Devgn) is a 50-year-old divorcee but with a young heart. He meets a beautiful girl 26-year-old Ayesha Khurana (Rakul Preet Singh) that is about half of his age. But they meet, become friends and then fall in love despite the huge age gap. Ashish Mehra wants to marry Ayesha Khurana but his family especially his ex-wife Manjana “Manju” Rao (Tabu) is against this match and marriage.
