I would never enter politics: Abhay Deol

A number of Bollywood celebrities may be making their political debut in this election season but actor Abhay Deol says he has no political aspirations, and the most he would do is go out and vote.

"I would never enter politics but I will go out and vote. If there are people who want to get into the system and bring some change, they can go ahead and do it. There is nothing wrong with that.

People from everywhere have to participate to clean the system from inside," Abhay said.

However, the 38-year-old actor's resume mostly boasts of films with a distinct social and political element. Be it Shanghai, which dealt with the issue of land displacement, Chakyavyuh about the Naxalite movement or Ranjhanna, where he played a young student leader and socialist.

Abhay feels even without entering politics, he tries to contribute in bringing change in the society through the medium of films. "I am not a politician, nor an activist.

But in my small way I try and bring change with the kind of films I do.

I choose my films very carefully. I have done films which are sensitive, which deal with some issues and are a mirror of the society," he said.
