Actor Abhay Deol, 35, who’ll be next seen in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, says the film is not inspired from the hit Hollywood franchise, The Hangover. “If the script was a copy of that or any other movie, I would’ve never signed it in the first place. Besides, I don’t think the first Hangover film was funny at all, and I haven’t even seen the second one,” he says.
The other thing that has everyone’s tongues wagging is his bare-chested act in the film. “I don’t understand why everyone is so concerned with the hair on my chest. Not all actors need to be tanned, waxed, or for that matter bulked up on muscles to be a leading man,” he says, adding, “I don’t know if my chest hair can be that big a part of any film role. How would it even make an impact?”
The actor is now sporting a moustache for his under-production film, Shanghai. Ask him if it was easy working with actors Farhan Akhtar and Hrithik Roshan, perhaps the posters boys for waxed chests and rippled abs, and he says, “I’m quite fit too, you know. We need to get over this obsession with six, seven, eight packs.”
