Abhay Deol’s repeated hybernation from films, makes the audience miss him more often. But we are not the only one’s wanting to see more of him on the big screen. As filmmaker, Aanand L Rai points out, even directors need him as much as his fans in films.

Aanand L Rai who is the producer of the Abhay Deol starrer, Happy Bhag Jayegi, feels that the he is a lazy but brilliant actor who needs to more movies.

“He is a lazy talented actor and I often tell him that. He does a film, then he goes somewhere and then makes a comeback. I told him to keep working and that the directors need him.”

 Rai has now come up with “Happy Bhag Jayegi”, starring Abhay and Diana Penty, slated to release next week. 

“Happy Bhag Jayegi” is the story of a girl (Diana Penty) running away before her marriage and how she accidentally lands in Pakistan. Rai came on board as a producer for the film. “I loved the humour, the comic element. It’s a cross border light-hearted romantic story without politics attached to it,” he said. 

The film also stars Ali Fazal and Pakistani actress Momal Sheikh in supporting roles. It’s all set to release on August 19.
