Abhay Deol Birthday Special: 5 iconic characters that left a mark on the viewers
Socha Na Tha
His debut film 'Socha Na Tha' with Ayesha Takia was all about two youngsters rejecting arranged marriage and becoming good friends. The twist is when they both realise that they love each other but are now engaged to other people. It is one love story we can watch over and over again.
'Dev D' is a modern-day take on Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay's classic Bengali novel 'Devdas'. It was a romantic black comedy. Abhay Deol plays Dev who takes to drugs after breaking up with his childhood sweetheart. He meets a young prostitute and falls in love with her. The movie was one of the most refreshing portrayals of the Paro-Devdas-Chandramukhi love triangle.
A boy from a poor family from suburban West Delhi grows up to become a fearless man who robs the elite in a unique style, just for fun. After being arrested by Special Crime Branch Inspector, Lucky Singh reflects upon his life. Abhay Deol as Devinder Singh alias Bunty (a real-life "super-chor") in 'Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!' was a delight to watch.
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
'Zindagi Na Milegi Doobara' was all about three friends who decide to turn their fantasy vacation into reality after one of them get engaged. Abhay feels that to be a part of this film was one of his finest decisions because it gave him everything from #TravelGoals to #FriendGoals, and even #LifeGoals.
Happy Bhaag Jayegi
'Happy Bhaag Jaayegi' was all about an Indian girl escaping an arranged marriage and landing unknowingly in Pakistan where the ex-governor's son helps reunite her with her boyfriend. Abhay Deol, as a suave Pakistani politician, left many swooning.
