Filmfare is Family Fare charges Abhay Deol!!!

When asked why he was not nominated this was Abhay's response:

For the record, the last award karan johar won was in 1998. That's a good 12 years ago. Hrithik won last year for jodhaa akbar not srk.

My favourites included konkona (lucky by chance), kareena(kurbaan), priyanka and shahid(kaminay). The juries thought otherwise. Respect that

Even I was sad when some performances I hold dear to my heart got overlooked.But you need to respect jury decisions and take it on the chin

Just because some of our favourite actors don't win u can't send abusive messages or rant incessantly. There's always a next time...

In your opinion has Abhay had ANY award winning performance that was overlooked?

If the jury thought kalki and mahi gill deserved awards and not abhay, we just hear them. He didn't bother to cheer for his costars.petty

Dude trust me it isn't about TRPs. If it was we should have given awards to the more glam kareena kapoor and priyanka chopra not Mahi gill!!

I totally disregard abhay deol's ranting. He should ask the jury(his friends)ask why his performances in oye lucky and dev d were overlooked

i dont think abhay deol had any performance worth nomination . devd i really dont knwo why its winning so much except music . OLLO first lucky was best and he was not even abhay deol .

Pardesi said...

Agree on OLLO - Abhay was almost a space filler there and Lucky one was amazing.

I applaud Abhay for being a part of many unusual small films that were very good. But that does not make him a great actor.

Breaking stereotypes

Abhay Deol on what it was like working with director Dev Benegal for Road, Movie

Abhay Deol's latest film, “Road, Movie”, was screened on the opening night at the Berlin International Film Festival to a rousing reception. With his choice of films, Abhay Deol continues to break the stereotypical norms in the Hindi film industry. Excerpts from an interview:

Dev seems to be a recurrent theme in your life. After acting in Dev D,you are working with director Dev Benegal in Road, Movie.

Absolutely. And from Dev Benegal, he soon became Dev B.

Had you heard of Dev Benegal when he came to you with the script?

Yes, I had heard about him. In fact, I had seen a film made by him called Split Wide Open. When I saw the film, I thought to myself ‘Kahan kahan se log director ban jaate hai; I will never work with him.'

With that kind of preconceived notion, how in the world did Benegal convince you to sign up for Road, Movie?

He actually kidnapped my parents and said he would kill them if I didn't do the film. I was a prisoner on the sets (laughs uproariously). More seriously, though, I read the script and thought it was really nice, dreamy and humorous. It's based in Rajasthan, so I kind of had a nice feel about it. I knew Dev would get a good team together. Also, it was backed by (production house) Studio 18, which was a big plus point. So, I went ahead and signed on the dotted line.

Considering the movie was shot on the road, it must have been uncomfortable…

When Dev approached me for the film, he said he wanted to shoot it in the month of March. I told him I was sorry as I was shooting for Dev D during that period. So he shifted the shoot to the summer months in Rajasthan … I remember how we were cramped up in the truck — Satishji, Faizal and I in the heat of Rajasthan. In fact, Tannishtha didn't even get a seat; she got a bit of space in the rear.

How was it working with Tannishtha and Satish Kaushik for the first time?

Satishji and Tannishtha are seasoned actors with a great body of work behind them. I got to know them during the making of the film and it was a pleasure.

And did you change your opinion about Dev Benegal?

Dev is a great director to work with. His thought process is clear and he is very receptive to ideas and opinions. Interestingly, when he has something nice to say, it means he's really angry; and when he has something nasty to say, it means he's really happy. He was nasty for the most part of the shoot, and that was a good thing.

Normally I would say, go Abhay - but did he win any of the awards? So Stardust is Star fare, Zee is Zee Fare and so on and so forth? Maybe I will wait until he wins a National Award, but wait - he is not part of the Sharmila family either :-)

I like Abhay Deol, but he is a classic case of actor who seems more than he is, simply because of the films he is in. Another example IMO is Konkona, she has blown me away in one film so far - Mr. and Mrs. Iyer. I can understand actors like Om Puri, Amrish Puri, Naseer Shah saying this - but Abhay?
