Anurag Kashyap had earlier said that Abhay Deol was extremely difficult to work with. They had worked on Dev D which released in 2009. In an interview with HuffPost India in 2020, he had said, “It was painfully difficult to work with him. I don’t really have great working memories with him. And haven’t talked to him much since I finished shooting. He wanted to do artistic movies but also wanted the mainstream benefits. The benefits and luxuries of being a ‘Deol’. 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."
Meanwhile, Abhay Deol is all set to star in Jungle Cry with Emily Shah. The movie is based on the true story of 12 boys from Kalinga Institute who trained hard to master the beautiful sport of Rugby, and within 4 months they went on to win the 2007 Under-14 Rugby World Cup.
