The Deols of Bollywood are synonymous to action, just as Kapoors are synonymous to romance. But one Deol boy took the high road. He did the unexpected and did every kind of role but action oriented, until now.
Abhay Deol now has his own production company called, Forbidden Films, that is expected to make films that are not typical to Bollywood. Their first venture is the film titled Basra, which is going to see Abhay as the action hero. So, the Deol boy is going to carry on the family tradition by bashing people up on screen.
One wonders if it is a well thought out strategy as this is his first film as a producer. Abhay states that action, comedy and romance are safe genres and when one becomes a producer, he needs to be cautious and read the market.
But this does not mean that he is following Dharmendra or brother Sunny's footsteps, he clarifies that if others think that he is fit to do only certain kind of movies, he will make movies in which he gets to be different.
