Abhay took to Instagram and shared a poster of his film “Manorama 6 Feet Under”, which was released in September 2007. “My film ‘Manorama 6 feet under’ released in 2007. They say it was ahead of its time for India. I say that I got tired of hearing, ‘I saw it on dvd, I loved it, when was this film even released!?'” he wrote alongside the image.

He added: “If I had a rupee for every time someone said that I’d be a multi millionaire! At the start of this century no one in power had the faith that experimentation would work with an Indian audience.” Abhay Deol Believes Black Lives Matter Movement Is for Equality, Actor Mentions the Problem with All Lives Matter Initiative.
