Abhay Deol excited about film with girlfriend Preeti Desai
Abhay Deol has said he is looking forward to his new film with real-life girlfriend Preeti Desai.
The star has turned producer for the rom-com in which he also stars with Desai.
Speaking to Mid Day, Deol said: “It is my director Devika Bhagat’s debut project too. I am happy and thankful that I have got a good team to work with.
“We have finished all preparation, though I didn’t have to do much. Preeti really had to work hard as she is playing a dancer in it. There is one peppy number in it on the lines of ‘Emotional Attyachar’ ( Dev D). I am sure it will become the next youth anthem.”
The actor added that he was not originally intended for the lead role.
“When Devika narrated the script to me, I really liked it and we were looking for an actor opposite Preeti. Eventually I fell in love with this character so much that I convinced my director to let me assay the role.”
Deol recently launched a schools awareness programme.
