Abhay Deol reveals he hated fame, recalls drinking every day ‘like a fool’ after Dev D

Abhay Deol recently talked about how he hated fame while growing up and recalled drinking every day after ‘Dev D

Actor Abhay Deol, who is receiving immense praise for his performance in the Netflix series ‘Trial By Fire’, recently talked about how he hated fame while growing up as he was questioned about his family members and recalled drinking every day after ‘Dev D’.

In an interview with Mashable India, Abhay said, ‘Because I grew up in a filmy family. I saw fame up close as a child. I didn’t like it because your privacy goes away. A lot is written about you. I used to literally hate fame and the media. Because growing up I saw a lot written about family, being questioned as a kid, 'Is it true, is that true?' It used to make me angry. 'Your father works in films, your uncle is a big star'. Obviously. Whatever was written about them, I was asked in school. I just didn't like that. I saw a lot of people around family who I knew were there to gain benefits, they weren't friends.’

He also spoke about the time when he was in New York and said, ‘The Dev D role that I did, I wasn’t out of that headspace. So for one year, I did what Dev D did in the film. I have a little more better than Dev. I wasn't in tattered clothes in the streets. I drank every day like a fool. I made some very good friends, so I remember some things. My whole life is a daze.’

‘Dev D’ is a 2009 romantic black comedy film that released in February 2009. It was written and directed by Anurag Kashyap. The film stars Abhay alongside Mahie Gill and Kalki Koechlin.

Abhay was last seen in the limited series ‘Trial By Fire’ based on the fire at Uphaar Cinema in 1997. Directed by Prashant Nair and produced by Endemol Shine India and House of Talkies, the drama also stars Rajshri Deshpande, Rajesh Tailang, Ashish Vidyarthi, Anupam Kher, Ratna Pathak, Shilpa Shukla, and Shardul Bharadwaj.

‘Trial By Fire’ premiered exclusively on Netflix on January 13.
