Actor Abhay Deol who featured in the recently released Happy Bhaag Jayegi alongside Diana Penty, says it’s not important for him to always get a positive feedback from his fans. The 40-year-old actor just wants the audience to react.

“I feel the pressure of delivering something that does not insult a person’s intelligence. Whether you like it or not, that’s another thing. So I don’t try to do that. It’s fine for someone to say, ‘the film made me question this topic and I still don’t agree with the film, but I am glad that they showed it or I don’t agree with the politics of this movie.’ This is what I aim for. I want people to think, to get provoked or just feel good about the film. I don’t expect them to love or like my films,” he says.

The actor, who was last seen in the film One By Two in 2014, says these breaks make him love his work more. “I like my breaks and it is important for me to take sabbaticals. It feels even sweeter when you are back. One or two years’ break is fine. I am in a place and profession where I can do that. But I miss being in front of the camera. I love what I do, I don’t do it just because it is the means to an end. It feels more precious after you have come back from a break. You are charged up as well,” he says.
