Our movies need to reflect our culture: Abhay Deol

Oct 29, 2012, 08:44 IST | Special Features

Abhay Deol is one of those actors who has a filmography that reflects back-to-back socially-relevant films. However, he was part of chilled-out films like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Aisha too before arriving on the serious actor scene.

On being asked whether it’s a conscious decision to agree to hard-hitting scripts, the actor took time to contemplate but came up with a really good answer.

He told CS, “I think it’s important to do what I’m trying to do. Our movies need to reflect our culture — not merely shaadi, naach, gaana — but also that part we aren’t very proud of. It’s high time we highlight that side as well.”
