Abhay Deol gets busy with international film projects


Abhay Deol, who is known to walk off the beaten path in films, has begun working on his next, 'The Field'. An American production by Guy J Louthan, the movie, helmed by Rohit Batra, is a crime drama revolving around the land mafia.

While Abhay plays a cop determined to bring down those in power, the film, set in Delhi, also stars Hollywood actor Brendan Fraser in a pivotal role. Further, it marks the return of veteran actor Prem Chopra to the screen after quite a while. 'The Field', touted to be Abhay's edgiest venture till date, is not the only international project in his kitty. His next, though in Hindi, is a Canadian production. A sci-fi, the film has him travelling back in time to solve a mystery. In between shooting, the actor is also busy presenting off-beat films on digital/theatrical platforms.

Interestingly, Abhay, who has shot for only one movie — 'Happy Bhag Jayegi' — in the last two years, is now doing three movies back to back. He says, "The last time I shot for three films back to back was when I did 'Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!', 'Dev.D' and 'Road, Movie'. It can get intense working like that, but now that I'm older, I'm more relaxed about the process."
