Abhay Deol (also known as Abhay Singh Deol, born 15 March 1976) is an Indian actor and producer, who works predominantly in Hindi language films. Born in the influential Deol family of the Hindi cinema, he began acting at a young age in theater productions at his school. Deol made his on-screen debut in 2005 with Imtiaz Ali’s romantic comedy Socha Na Tha.

After the modest success of his debut, Deol garnered praise for his performances in films including Manorama Six Feet Under (2007), which won him the Best Actor Award at the Indo-American Arts Council Film Festival, and the commercially successful Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! (2008). His breakthrough role came in 2009 with the starring role as Dev in Anurag Kashyap’s critically and commercially successful Dev.D, a modern-day adaptation of the Bengali classic novel Devdas. With the success of the film, Deol gained wider recognition and further praise from film critics.

Deol mainly appeared in independent films early in his career, but that changed in 2011 when he starred in Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, a road film that went to become one of the highest-grossing films in Bollywood. His performance in the film was well-received, and earned him his first nomination for Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor. Deol has since appeared in commercially successful films including the drama film Raanjhanaa (2013), and the romantic comedy Happy Bhag Jayegi (2016), while simultaneously working in independent films including the drama Road, Movie (2010) and the war film Chakravyuh (2012).

Deol continuously garners attention for his portrayal of complex characters on screen and is vociferous in his support for parallel cinema in India. He has often been labeled as a nonconformist or an unconventional actor by Indian media. Deol owns a production company, Forbidden Films which was established in 2009. In addition to his acting career, he is also an active philanthropist and supports various NGOs.

Early Life

Deol was born into a Sikh family to Ajit Singh Deol and Usha Deol. He is the nephew of Film Actor Dharmendra, and the cousin of Esha Deol, Ahana Deol, Bobby Deol and Sunny Deol. Abhay Deol stated in an interview with Rediff that he is into acting not because of his father, but because he was involved in theatre since school. “At 18, I decided to take the plunge. It took me 10 years because I didn’t want to leave my education to get into films.”

Controversies• He was not happy about being part of ‘Aisha’ (2010), also starring Sonam Kapoor. According to him, the film derailed from its path and had more to do with clothes than acting.
• On the eve of the Screen Awards 2014, Abhay attended the event with a black eye. He showed it as a sign of protest against music label ‘T-Series’ for not releasing the music of his film ‘One By Two.’ He posted about it on his facebook account that he has since decided to take a stand against the practice of signing certain contracts that he claims may damage remuneration of singers and music composers.

• In April 2017, he criticized some of the Bollywood actors for endorsing fairness creams with series of Facebook posts, including Shah Rukh Khan, Vidya Balan, Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra, Shahid Kapoor, etc. In response to it, Sonam Kapoor, had an online spat with Abhay, reminding him that his cousin Esha Deol had also done a similar ad.
