An interesting facet of Abhay Deol's personality has come to fore at the time when DEV D is celebrating 50 days at theaters across the country. Apparently, Abhay is not just a good actor and a man who has flair for selecting the best scripts (he has proven this ever since he debuted with SOCHA NA THA till his recent releases DEV D and OYE LUCKY LUCKY OYE), he is also an able cartoonist. Though there hasn't been much noise being made about this talent of his, friend and director Anurag Kashyap is more than willing to spill the beans.

''Abhay draws really well and is excellent when it comes to storyboarding. Not just is he a good cartoonist; he is also very clear about the words-to-visuals translation on paper'', reveals Anurag who has been Abhay's friend for quite some time now.

''Abhay and me go back a long way. We know each other ever since the time when I hadn't even started work in PAANCH. He used to drop in at my place along with Vikram, the co-writer of DEV D. Both of them were in school together when they hadn't even entered their teens. I was a complete outsider but when I entered the film industry, I started hanging out with them. It was the beginning of a good association'', Anurag goes down the memory lane.

The bond started thickening as Abhay started helping out Anurag while he was making BLACK FRIDAY. ''Not many are aware but Abhay was a very good help in storyboarding of BLACK FRIDAY. He also drew down the details around the blast sequences on paper which really helped us during the shoot.''

Well, with a cartoonist instinct in him and a storyboarding capacity, one wonders if the next stage for Abhay Deol would be to turn director with an out and out comedy flick. Stay tuned!
