For some film stars, family comes first. Abhay Deol’s first production venture One By Two was supposed to release on February 7, but now he has decided to release it on January 31 to make way for his cousin Sunny Deol’s film Dhishkyaaoon.
A source close to them says, “Initially, during the discussions, Abhay realised that since Dev D -- which changed the course of his career -- too released on February 7, he was keen to have his production release on the same day too. However once he got to know that Sunny has a release on the same day, he chose to push back the release."
Abhay is close to his cousins Sunny and Bobby Deol and did not want a clash at box office.
Adds the source, “Even though he would have loved to have a release on the same date, he was not in favour of eating into the business of Sunny’s film. Moreover, his reasoning was if the date is lucky, then he would be equally happy if someone from his family benefits from it.”
Abhay’s spokesperson confirms, “Abhay was keen to release the film on February 7, but when he got to know Sunny Deol’s film releasing on the same day, he moved the release of One By Two to an earlier date.”
