He is an Indian actor who worked in films like Dev.D, Ek Chalis ki Last local, Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!, Aisha, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and many more. The 44 years old actor is one of the most under appreciated talent of Bollywood. His effortless screen presence makes his different from others.

“Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara”, released in 2011. Need to chant this title to myself everyday nowadays! Also a great watch when anxious or stressed. I would like to mention that almost all the award functions demoted me and Farhan from main leads, and nominated us as “supporting actors”. Hrithik and Katrina were nominated as “actors in a leading role”. So by the industry’s own logic, this was a film about a man and a woman falling in love, with the man supported by his friends for whatever decisions he takes. There are many covert and overt ways in which people in the industry lobby against you. In this case it was shamelessly overt. I of course boycotted the awards but Farhan was ok with it. #familyfareawards Very creative artwork @kalakkii
After the shocking death of Sushant Singh Rajput, many actors and people working in the industry are sharing their bad experience while working there. Abhay deol words are genuine and real because often times we observes the same in Bollywood award shows.
