Abhay Deol is working with Diana Penty for the first time in the movie, Happy Bhag Jayegi. Recently, the actor praised Diana and said that she is a natural comic.
He told the media, "Comedy is all about timing. I think comedy
is such that if it's there in you and if you're automatically
comical, then it comes very naturally. In that sense, comedy is
very easy if you're a natural comic. But if you're not, then it can
be tougher than drama. The good thing with Diana is that she
doesn't think much... She just reacts. So I think she is a natural
comic, but she is not aware of it. And that was fun.''
Abhay Deol further added, "If I would do something, she would
respond accordingly. That's very important in comedy... That your
actors also get each other.''

Diana too, praised her co-star Abhay Deol, "I have always been a
fan of the kind of work he does, the content-driven kind of films
he chooses. I think he is a very selfless actor because he will do
whatever it takes for the other actor to get their scene right,
which a lot of other people don't do.''
Happy Bhag Jayegi also features Ali Fazal, Jimmy Sheirgill and Piyush Mishra.
