Abhay Deol wants to surprise audiences
"As an actor I want to do something that has never been seen before.. I want to try the zone that has never been tried by anyone. I want to surprise my audience with my every film," he told PTI.
The actor, who has done unconventional movies like `Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd`, `Dev D`, `Manorama Six Feet Under`, `Ek Chaalis Ki Last Local` and `Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye` intends to astonish the audience with `Shanghai` directed by Dibakar Banerjee, which goes on floors by March-April.
Abhay will be sharing screen with actor Emraan Hashmi in the political thriller, adapted from the book called `Z` by Greek novelist Vassilis Vassilikos on the real-life assassination of a dynamic politician.
"The story dwells on how people are at the receiving end of politics. How the decisions taken by politicians affects a common man," the 34-year-old actor said.
On his role, the maverick actor said, "In this film I will be in a never seen character like before…it is a negative, cold, vicious character. We are still in the scripting process."
"Dibakar is one of the finest directors…I had the opportunity to work with in `Oye Lucky…`. I love the way he creates his own world through his scripts. He has a brilliant way of telling stories," Abhay said.
Abhay will next be seen in Zoya Akhtar`s big budget multi-starrer film `Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara` alongside Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar, Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin.
Asked if he is now looking for commercially successful films, the actor said, "This is the first time I am doing a film with an ensemble cast, who are all in the big league. I do films that I like. For me all films are commercial. The moment we say the film is non-commercial it means it does not do any commerce. Everybody makes a film for it to do well commercially."
