Abhay Deol is the latest guest on’s special series, ‘Flashback with the Stars.’ The actor speaks about his upcoming release Lionsgate Play's ‘Jungle Cry,’ sacrificing the star game, being manipulated by some filmmakers he worked with and much more!

Looking back at his journey in films, Abhay says, “I was only doing what I felt I could do authentically and give myself to with conviction. Money was never the motive. Sure, I want to make money, don’t get me wrong but it’s not the driving factor! Creativity was the driving factor. I didn’t do those films to be different or prove a point, I did them because it came naturally to me. If I am in a position of privilege, who else will do it if not me! I did sacrifice the star game as a result of it but the advantage of my background wasn’t getting work, I created my own work. Fame and money don’t necessarily bring you happiness because I came from a family that had both!”

Opening up about ‘Jungle Cry’ and why he came on board for the film, the actor says, “It is a true story, which I found most interesting. It shines light on the fact that these kids play rugby but rugby isn’t a popular sport for the media. It’s an institute built specifically for kids from tribal backgrounds and these kids aren’t someone who would get media time or stories written about them. To see that they had come up the hard way, achieved so much and won the world cup and still not got any attention because we happened to win the cricket world cup in the same year, I found that really intriguing”
