Abhay Deol, who turns producer with his upcoming film ONE BY TWO, has started his production house with a philosophy in mind. Going forward, the actor-turned-producer will be seen giving a chance to new writers, directors and actors.
Abhay Deol has himself walked on a lesser tread route in his acting career by choosing to work with debutant directors like Imtiaz Ali in SOCHA NA THA, Navdeep Singh in MANORAMA SIX FEET UNDER, Reema Kagti in HONEYMOON TRAVELS PVT. LTD. and other debut directors like Shivam Nair.
The actor feels lucky that he has found good talent for himself each time when he was into acting. Now, Abhay Deol wants to get new talent and give them a platform to showcase their work.
He is keen on creating new age cinema which is neither commercial nor arty. It is something that he calls 'middle-of-the-road' cinema. Abhay has always gone by his gut feeling for acting and he wants to continue the same philosophy with his production house.
Even in ONE BY TWO, Abhay Deol was not supposed to be a part of the cast but the team strongly felt that he fits in the lead actor character perfectly.
Abhay Deol says, "I would really like my production house to be a creative hub where new talent gets launched. We would love to work with as many new writers, directors and actors."
