Be it any profession, quality work always triumphs. This is especially true when it comes to Bollywood. And while thousands of people step into the City of Dreams to become actors, only some can achieve that feat though.
While some choose to do theatre acts at the start to gain better experience and improve one's skills before jumping in front of the lens, others prefer acting classes and try their luck.
Son of Dharmendra Singh Deol, Abhay, was born in an influential family of the Hindi Cinema. Abhay Deol chose to pursue acting from a very young age and participated in theatre productions during school.
He debuted in Imtiaz Ali's romantic comedy Socha Na Tha in 2005. 13 long years since then and he has appeared in various films as dynamic as the Bollywood is today. Here's a select list of varied genres of cinema Abhay has starred in:
Manorama Six Feet Under is a neo-noir film where Abhay plays the character of an amateur detective in a small sleepy town from Rajasthan. However, the film later leads to a plot where the detective is caught in a web of lies, deceit, and murder.
Dev D is a modern-day take on Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay's classic Bengali novel Devdas set in contemporary Punjab and Delhi. Written and directed by Anurag Kashyap it is one of the most impactful roles Abhay have portrayed in his career.
And, who would forget Kabir from Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara who develops a misunderstanding with his fiancée Natasha and instead of marrying her, decides otherwise. While Abhay is seen in an all new avatar in this one, we realize he's the one who never stops to experiment.
Abhay plays the role of Bilal Ahmed in the flick Happy Bhag Jayegi. The multi-starrer film was conceived as a 'cross-border' romantic comedy and was originally titled 'Dolly Lahore Mein.'
And now, you'll soon see Abhay Deol as Anand (Nanu), in the upcoming film Nanu Ki Jaanu on April 20th. It is a remake of the 2014 Tamil movie Pisaasu.
Don't forget to visit your nearby theatres and see Abhay act in an all-new genre.
Until then, folks.
