Abhay Deol believes that he has played the anti-hero through most of his career. As he makes his debut in Tamil cinema in a negative role, the actor feels it was a natural progression.
Sharing pictures from the set of his next film, he wrote, “On the set of a movie called “The Hero” where I play “The Villain!” Was a natural progression I guess, I’ve played the anti-hero through most of my career. Oh and this one’s in Tamil ????! New language, new territory.”
Hero is being directed by PS Mithran. His debut film ‘Irumbu Thirai’ was highly noticed for the overpowering character of the antagonist. In an interview, he said that it became an additional responsibility to create a villainous character with herculean shades. Talking about Abhay’s character he said that he is someone unpredictable and unassuming. His reactions would be just a smile, but there’s more terror lying beneath it.
Abhay is also working on another Tamil film titled Idhu Vedalam Sollum Kadhai.
Abhay Deol was last seen in the Netflix original film Chopsticks. Apart from that he also made a brief appearance in the 2018 film Zero.
The actor has been very active on social media and is known to speak his heart out, a quality which his fans and admirers are appreciating.
