According to a leading entertainment publication, a large chunk of De De Pyaar De 2 shoot overlapped with shooting dates for Anil Kapoor in YRF Spy Universe Film. A source spilled the beans on the same, “Anil Kapoor wanted to do De De Pyaar De 2, but his commitment with YRF is long term, for multiple films in the fabled Spy Universe designed by Aditya Chopra. When he had to pick between the two, he chose to feature as the head of RAW in the upcoming Spy Films.”
