Abhay Deol, who has never tried his hands at masala action film in the past, will be seen doing some hardcore action in Prakash Jha’s CHAKRAVYUH.
Says a source, ”The film is based on Naxalites and Abhay is playing one in the film, while Arjun (Arjun Rampal) plays a cop. So, the nature of the film is such that it requires a lot of action scenes in the forests.”

”The film has a lot of real-time action, so there will be more chase sequences and we’ve made Abhay run a lot. In fact, he’s done all the sequences himself and seemed absolutely at ease doing all the action, though he’s done it for the first time,” adds the source.

Abhay Deol is said to be quite excited about doing action stunts mainly because the action will be more realistic. Further adds the source, ”Abhay has done a lot of running in the film. But what he’s more excited about is that even though it’s action, its action that he can relate to more realistically. It wasn’t like a hero taking down a few dozen baddies completely on his own. The action here is more to do with sudden attacks and police encounters.”
And apparently everyone on the sets couldn’t help but point out how the action came naturally to Abhay, as after all he’s a true-blue Deol. ”It’s all in his genes,” adds the source.
CHAKRAVYUH, a political thriller directed by Prakash Jha, stars Arjun Rampal, Abhay Deol, Manoj Bajpai, and Esha Gupta.
