    Abhay Deol, who is famous for doing offbeat films, says that in India it is very hard for people to break away from traditions.

    In an interview to a leading news agency, Abhay Deol said, "We are shaped by our traditions. With us, it is a little more difficult because we are traditionalist. We have 5000-year-old history which is now almost a part of our DNA. How do you break that? "America, for example, doesn't have that history behind it. It romanticises rebellion. We look down upon rebellion. It's an insult. To think out of the box is looked down upon here."

    Abhay Deol further added, "It is definitely hard when you're going against the tide. Of course, it is tough. But does that mean you can't do it? No, it depends on your strength, stamina and ability to take so much power against you. But it's not just Bollywood, it is also in Hollywood. It's the same thing everywhere.''

    "I like doing mainstream films, because not only do they give me a wider release and audience, they also supports the off beat films I want to make. The two go hand in hand. My effort is always that whatever mainstream films I do, they should not insult the intelligence of the audience,'' he said.
