Abhay Deol, who turns producer with his upcoming film One by Two has started his production house with a philosophy in mind. Going forward, the actor turned producer will be seen giving a chance and launching new writers, directors and actors.
Abhay Deol has himself walked on a lesser taken route in his acting career by choosing to work with a lot of new comer director in the industry like Imtiaz Ali in Socha na Tha, Navdeep Singh in Manorama Six Feet under, Reema Kagti in Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd. and other debut directors like Shivam Nair.
The actor feels lucky that he has found good talent for himself each time when he was into acting. Now Abhay Deol wants to get new writer, director, actor talent and give them a new platform to showcase their work.
He is keen on creating new age cinema which is neither on the commercial side nor arty. It is something that he calls ‘middle of the road’ cinema. Abhay Deol has always gone by his gut feeling for acting and he wants to continue this with his production house.
Even in One By Two, Abhay Deol was not supposed to be a part of the cast but the team strongly felt that he fits in the lead actor character perfectly.
Abhay Deol says, "I would really like my production house to be a creative hub where new talent gets launched. We would love to work with as many new writers, directors and actors."
