Tanushree said it was possible for the "De De Pyaar De" team to re-shoot Alok's scenes once the allegations against him were made public by

"Nobody even knew before the posters and trailers that Nath is in the film, so if Ajay and the makers wanted they could have just quietly replaced him and re-shot his portions (which is barely 10-15 days for character in Bollywood), and given the respect she deserves as well as several other women who were troubled by this guy, but no."

Nanda had last year accused Alok Nath of allegedly raping her nearly 19 years ago when they worked together. He denied it.

This had emerged after the #MeToo movement gained momentum in when Tanushree had accused veteran of sexual harassment on the sets of "Horn OK Pleassss" in 2008.
