Unlike many other actors, Abhay Deol has always been choosy about the kind of films he is part of. And for his upcoming production, The Bounty Hunter, he is ensuring that the best talent join hands. The actor has managed to strike a deal with a UK-based production company to co-produce the film at the
ongoing NFDC Film Bazaar that is being held alongside 44th International Film Festival Of India (IFFI) in Goa.

“We have the England part of it sorted; we just need to have the Indian part (producer) to come on board. I will be happy to act in as well as produce the film, as I love the script so much,” he says.

He also clarifies that the film is not a remake of the 2010 Hollywood film by the same name. “It just shares the same title, but it’s a Hindi film which will be shot in the UK,” he says.

Besides this, Abhay is also looking for a foreign sales agent for a non-traditional international release of another production of his — One By Two. “I thought it might be a good exercise just to see what kind of foreign sales agents are here and to see if it (the film) can get a non-traditional
foreign release. I am already in a safe zone. If this happens, it’ll be a cherry on top,” he says.
