Today, Abhay Deol's AISHA hits the screens. For Abhay, it has been one eventful journey from SOCHA NA THA to AISHA. However, he doesn't regret the roadblocks that he faced during his early years in Bollywood.

"I guess all of this was only a blessing in disguise because now I could start taking further risks", Abhay lightens up here, "I could now afford to do films like DEV D and OYE LUCKY LUCKY OYE because taking such risks was worthy enough. As for some of my earlier films, it was my naivety and gullibility that they saw such disappointing releases. I was so clueless about the whole marketing. However, now I have learnt as I have moved along."

No wonder, he was totally on board when the release and promotion of ROAD, MOVIE came along. Made for a niche segment of audience, it again fetched some good critical acclaim for the actor. Now that he has a film like AISHA lined up and shooting of ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA going on in full swing, does he feel that in half a decade gone by, he has planned his innings quite well?

"Honestly speaking, five years back I always wanted to do stuff that was going to be non-Bollywood. I carried this sense right from my childhood days", confesses Abhay, "However, don't take me wrong. I was never like 'Hey, I am different, so things have to move my way'. I had to enter the industry and see if I can act and then also demonstrate it to people. After that, I put down rules for myself around what I could do and perhaps couldn't do."

Well, the way audience are continuing to shower him with all the compliments and appreciations, seems like the set of rules are really paying off for the non-conformist actor.
