Abhay Deol is known for the unconventional career choices he made when everyone wanted to be a ‘Bollywood hero.’

Abhay said, “Because I come from a family and have a last name, they (Deol family) have an image. When I started, I was fighting to present my identity and my personality, but the makers were coming back to me and saying, ‘You have a family that has an image, why don’t you just take advantage of that’.”
