''They advised me to not produce. According to them, you have to be very diligent and trust people around you. And I had that power with me. I had people I could trust. That's when I chose to go forward. They'll be there if I need their help. That's what they said,'' says the 37-year-old actor.
It will be the first time that Abhay and Preeti will be seen sharing screen space in ONE BY TWO.
Ask him how easy or difficult it is to bring out the real-life romance on reel and he says, ''It's never easy. Not when you are involved with somebody. Like I've always said with my family, how can be someone I'm not. They've seen me since I was a child. It also extends a bit to your partner as well.''
Directed by Devika Bhagat, the film is all set to release on January 31, 2014.
