While closer home, there were murmurs around him facing issues during the filming of Aisha, Abhay comes up with an outright denial and states that all such stories were nothing but plain imagination that didn't carry any standing whatsoever.
"Really, I didn't face any issues whatsoever", says Abhay when questioned if such rumours were indeed true, "On the contrary, I had so much fun making this film. I don't know from where these stories were coming from. Or perhaps if I think really hard, I could actually trace their origin. Well, let it go!"
He is also amused in the manner some stories are built regardless of what an actor says on the records.
"Some journos put a question in such a manner that whatever you say, it goes on to become a headline", smiles Abhay, "For example if someone asked me that whether I had an affair with the leading lady of my film, my answer will surely make a headline, whether I say 'yes' or 'no'. They think that we actors don't get it but that's not the case at all. We are not dumb but if someone is just hell bent on making a headline, you have to just let it go."
It's the stance of all izz well that Abhay is taking, now that the film is just a few days away from release.
"By and large it was quite good making this film", Abhay gets serious here, "Sonam and me really got along well and whatever you read about any issues whatsoever is nothing but plain rumour. As I said, it is just a game of headline."
Well, rightly said Abhay, we too got one!
Aisha is up for release and the film is seeing some intensive promotional drive from its leading lady Sonam Kapoor. Meanwhile, Abhay Deol is currently abroad shooting for Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara with Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Katrina Kaif. While he is currently absent from the promotional scene, well physically at least, he did ensure that he pitches in as much as possible into media before flying away.
