Abhay to play a 40 yr.old IAS officer in SHANGHAISHANGHAI, which is directed by Dibakar Banerjee and also stars Emraan Hashmi as the lead protagonist, features Abhay Deol as an IAS officer who is a 40 year old South Indian and finds himself pushed and pulled by various forces while following his call of duty.
"SHANGHAI is a very different story while being contemporary," says Abhay, "The film is based in a small town in India and is about progress. However we have made sure that it is entertaining to the hilt because it is only then can a message be conveyed most effectively. The film shows how most of us aspire to be living a better life, get better roads and infrastructure and have superior quality things around it. But then isn't it all easier said than done?"
What Abhay believes has become easier though is his stint in the industry. Post ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA, he has finally been recognized as someone who can deliver big commercial success as well.
