MUMBAI : Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn on Thursday remarked his upcoming film De De Pyaar De is not an out-and-out comedy-drama.
He says, “I would not call it a complete comedy film. It is a slice-of-life film with situational humour in it. It is really mature and yet entertaining. There are a lot of other issues it touches upon in a humorous way. Also, it has many strong characters.”
Ajay Devgn plays the role of Ashish, a 50-year-old divorcee in the Akiv Ali directorial. He falls in love with 26-year-old Ayesha and the trailer shows him stuck between his ex-wife (Tabu) and girlfriend (Rakul Preet Singh).
De De Pyaar De explores the dynamics of a relationship differently. Instead of sticking to the conventional love story, it portrays romance between an older man and a younger woman. Devgn feels this evolution in the portrayal of romance onscreen has happened because of the change in society’s mindset. “Stories in Bollywood are getting more real and this has happened because society has started to open up about whatever is happening. So, it’s better for us because we can now start touching those topics which were left earlier,” he says.
