Ajay Devgn's 2019 film De De Pyaar De's sequel was recently announced. The makers of De De Pyaar De 2 confirmed that the second installment will be released in cinemas on May 1, 2025. While Ajay and Rakul Preet will return in the second part, Tabu is unlikely to do DDPD 2. Directed by Anshul Sharma, De De Pyaar De 2 has marked Ajay's reunion with R Madhavan. The latest update about DDPD 2 is that R Madhavan will be playing Rakul's father in the movie.

According to a Hindustan Times report, Anil Kapoor was initially set to be a part of De De Pyaar De. However, the makers later roped in R Madhavan for the character of Rakul's dad in the film.

"Madhavan will play Rakul’s father in De De Pyaar De 2. The plot of the film will now be on the lines of the hilarious one-upmanship that will ensue between Ajay and Madhavan — over Rakul’s character dating a man older than her father. With Anil, that plotline wouldn’t have had the desired impact, since Anil is older than Ajay, but now, with Madhavan essaying the role, it fits the narrative aptly," a source informed the publication.


For those who are unaware, De De Pyaar De revolved around the story of Ayesha (Rakul), who falls in love with an older man Aashish (Ajay). The second installment will reportedly shed light on how Ayesha's family reacts to her relationship with Aashish. The movie is reportedly being shot in Mumbai with Ajay and Rakul.
