Abhay Deol shares the poster of Shanghai, says it’s extremely relevant in today’s time

Bollywood News

Abhay Deol has been sharing some of his best works so far on his Instagram. He admits that it was Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise that pushed him a little to call out the lobby culture in Bollywood. Even though the two did not know each other personally, Abhay could relate to Sushant’s career. He had also pointed out how a prominent award show had sidelined Farhan Akhtar and him during Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, despite knowing that they were lead actors in the film, too.

Abhay Deol shares the poster of Shanghai, says it’s extremely relevant in today’s time

He has been sharing a few factoids about his films and this time, it’s one of the best political movies, Shanghai. Abhay Deol spoke about how this Dibakar Banerjee directorial is extremely relevant in today’s time and a film on Bollywood can be made with a similar plot. He further said that he’s not sure if today’s outrage will give rise to an independent Hindi film and music industry but he feels good that there are a lot of people voicing their opinions.

Take a look at Abhay Deol’s post.

“Shanghai”, released in 2012. A contemporary Indian take on the Greek novel “Z” by author Vassilis Vassilikos. Directed by Dibakar Banerji this film puts systemic corruption in politics front and center, with devastating impact. Extremely relevant today. Looks like these days one could make a film about the corrupt practices of Bollywood! By the way, not sure if the current outrage will give rise to an independent Hindi film and music industry, without the unoriginal tag of “Bollywood”, but it sure feels good to hear loud voices from within the industry, risking their careers for the bigger “picture” (pun intended ????).
