Talking about his equation with Zoya Akhtar, who incidentally is his tenth director in his film career, Abhay says, "Zoya is a genius filmmaker. I have never enjoyed shooting films so much as I have done with her. Zoya is among my top three directors of today's time and the kind of understanding she has of cinema is simply outstanding."
Abhay is also contemplating working with Dibakar Banerjee of OYE LUCKY LUCKY OYE fame. Though the two have discussed their next subject but nothing has materialized so far.
For the moment, Abhay is keenly awaiting the response to his home production YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA which is all set to release in few weeks.
