He made a successful debut as a chocolate boy in Imtiaz Ali’s “Socha Na Tha”. However, barring Anurag Kashyap’s “Dev.D” & Sonam Kapoor starrer “Aisha”, he has always been defying his romantic side to do roles which are completely different. But now, we hear that he is all set to play an out & out romantic in debutant director Vibhu Puri’s “Bambai Fairy Tale”.
Vibhu, who has written SLB’s “Saawariya”, was all set to direct the ambitious “Chenab Gandhi”, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Rajeev Khandelwal & Vidya Balan, but the film got shelved due to the fallout with his producer, Sanjay Leela Bhansali. And if sources are to be believed, the director recently met Abhay & discussed the prospect. And reportedly, Abhay is so happy with the film that he might also produce it.
So, finally the long wait of Abhay’s female fans is over as they will get to see the “Shanghai” star in different avatar altogether, soon.
