Which is how Abhay Deol's Wikipedia entry describes him. Certainly a lot of thinking women and men have been doing some thinking about his role in the upcoming film Aisha, purported to be based on Jane Austen's Emma.
And I've had my little stack of Abhay Deol films sitting here (sans Road, Movie, which I haven't been able to watch yet), just waiting for the right moment to partake in a little Abhay Deol Filmfest.
Some of you know that I've been trying to collect up all of Govinda's films in order to watch them in chronological order from beginning to end. It's kind of a crazy undertaking -- especially with someone like Govinda, who has this MASSIVE filmography, much of which is hard to find, impossible to find, or, if you do find it, has no subtitles.
But Abhay Deol? A late starter in the film business, with, at this point, nine released films (Aicha will be the tenth. Also, I cannot find the 2009 film Meridian Lines, anywhere. It wasn't even on his filmography way back when I bought all his films in order to do this at some point.)
An Abhay Deol Filmfest from beginning to end (with the exception of Road, Movie, I think, at least for the time being) is totally do-able. Totally feasible.
