Interestingly, Lallan was the first of Abhishek's three Bihari characters. He plays a Bihari in Rituparno Ghosh's Bengali "Antarmahal" and then in Aparna Sen's Hindi "Gulel".

"I seem to be bonded to Bihar," he smiles. "I've done a Bengali film 'Des' with my mom. And now Ritu's film. Though in neither do I speak Bengali."

While "Phir Milenge" got him the laurels, it's his other release "Dhoom" that has brought Abhishek a belated blockbuster. Reading new scripts, meeting a queue of producers, Abhishek doesn't seem to be overwhelmed by the success of "Dhoom".

"I'm quite amazed by the reactions it has evoked. Not just me, but all of us - John Abraham, Uday Chopra, Esha Deol and Rimi Sen - are going to benefit from the film."

This isn't the first time Abhishek has played a cop. "I played a cop in 'Zameen', and that too did well. I guess the colour khaki is lucky for me," he smiles heading for an appointment with buddy Rohan Sippy who's planning a road comedy with Abhishek and Saif Ali Khan.

What about a love life? "I'm blissfully single and enjoying every minute of my work," shoots Abhishek.
