Bollywood actor Abhay Deol is his own individual and doesn’t care about perceptions. The cousin of Sunny Deol is very articulate, well read and a deep thinker. Abhay likes to work in meaningful and content-driven cinema. Now, the ‘Shanghai‘ actor has blasted the role of media and how it functions. Yes, you have read it right!

Abhay Deol will next be seen in the comedy ‘Chopsticks’, due out on Netflix on Friday. The actor in an interview with Hindustan Times said, “Unless you don’t pay media to scream loudly and put you out there, you’re not going to be heard. My first production I put up on Facebook and pay-per-view. I was the first person in the world to do that. This was in 2014. In our current system of paid-for media, it’s very hard to make a noise unless you pay for that media.”

Abhay also reiterated his fact about the role of content-driven cinema and said, “The movies they’re trying to make today, we were doing them 10-12 years ago. I think those films were well-timed in the sense that, maybe if they had not come out, this change (that we see today) would not have been so quick, perhaps.”

Abhay had made his mark by doing films like ‘Dev. D.’, ‘Shanghai’, ‘Manorama: Six Feet Under’ and these films were beautifully made. The actor hoped that with the advent of digital space, quality work can be appreciated much more.
