Abhay Deol who began acting at a young age in theatre productions at his school made his on-screen debut in 2005 with Imtiaz Ali's romantic comedy Socha Na Tha. After the modest success of his debut, Deol was praised for his performances in films such as Manorama Six Feet Under,  Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!,  Dev.D, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Raanjhanaa and much more. The actor who has been away from the big screen for quite a while in an interview with HuffPost India said that he was too bullish on the success behind him. He deluded himself into thinking that now the big players would put their money on him and experiment. Maybe the very expectation that they’d see things his way was his arrogance.

The actor added that he could have played the game better. And could have secured himself in a bigger manner. But he did not. And that was his choice. He doesn't have any regrets. But looks like Anurag Kashyap with whom Abhay worked in Dev D had something different to say about the actor. Anurag Kashyap said that it was painfully difficult to work with him. He didn't really have great working memories with him. And haven’t talked to him much since he finished shooting.

He further said that Abhay wanted to do artistic movies but also wanted the mainstream benefits. The benefits and luxuries of being a ‘Deol’. He added, "He would stay in a five-star hotel while the entire crew stayed in Paharganj for a film that was made on a very tight budget. Also the reason a lot of his directors went away from him. He wasn’t there to promote Dev D. He dissed the film and crew a lot. He was gone a long time. It was because of something he was grappling with emotionally and personally and never talked about. He also felt betrayed by me about which he has never spoken to me ever."

Director of Manorama Six Feet Under Navdeep Singh also said that there’s a bit of pride and resentment in him which Navdeep thinks Abhay should get over. Ultimately everybody is connected to everybody, he thinks Abhay should just get back because he’s incredibly gifted.

It could be that Abhay Deol did not want to get exploited early on in his career. Wanting to do content rich movies does not mean one has to compromise on pay scale in comparison to main stream Bollywood actors. Especially if a big producer like Utv is backing the movie. This is a question for UTV , could they not have done a little better than Paharganj for the crew ? I guess in films there are no HR policies in place .... and one has to settle for less if one is looking to go against the grain. That will make them happy.

His arrogance came across after doing a role in Aisha which he dissed afterwards and during promotions. It is funny that he takes himself so seriously and disses his colleagues for the kind of cinema they do, and yet the choices he makes turn out to be mediocre as well lol. He is gifted no doubt but he needs to leave his "I am better than others" behind.
