Abhay Deol has received a lot of compliments for his performance in DEV D from the critics & movie goers alike and has made the Deol clan prouder. But not many are aware that his biggest fan is at home - his elder brother Bobby Deol who just can't stop raving about Abhay these days.
Recently when Bobby was in town to promote his latest film EK - THE POWER OF ONE he seemed all charged up but as we asked him about his younger bro Abhay, he got all the more excited and couldn't stop praising Abhay for his work. ''He was simply awesome in DEV D. But what is more amazing is that he stuck to the kind of films that he has believed in and has taken the step forward. Believe me it takes a lot of guts to do a film like DEV D. Abhay has given a superb film and I am so proud of him,'' Says Bobby.
Bobby recalls, ''We lovingly call Abhay Dimpy at home. Abhay was always multi talented. As a child he used to paint. He was a good cartoonist as well. It's really nice that he is doing films appealing to today's youth. It is nice to see that, thanks to the multiplex culture his brand of cinema is being appreciated.''
So is Bobby willing to make an on-screen jodi with Abhay? ''Why not? If we get the right script and our characters are well etched then of course we shall be seen together. But frankly nothing unique has crossed our paths yet.'' Bobby concludes before signing off.
