There is no official information available about the budget of the film. However, considering the genre and scale, I am estimating De De Pyaar De budget to be around 50-60 crores. The cost of promotion and publicity would be around 15 crores.
The shooting of the film was completed last year in September. It was scheduled to release on 15 March 2019 but was delayed to 17 May 2019 to avoid competition with Devgn’s Total Dhamaal which was released on 22 Feb 2019. The makers are holding paid previews on 16 May 2019.

The makers haven’t released the teaser. They directly released the trailer 10 days after revealing the first look of the film.
The official trailer of the film was launched on 2 April 2019 on Ajay Devgn’s 50th birthday. It received a positive response as the viewers loved the amalgamation of romance and comedy. However, in no time, it ran into controversy due to the presence of Alok Nath who is accused of sexual misconduct.
The first song of this film “Vaddi Sharaban” was released on 11 April 2019. It is an Indian traditional dance number featuring Ajay and Rakulpreet.
