A few weeks back, Abhay Deol took lead on his Instagram and shared a still from Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and wrote in the caption that how he and Farhan Akhtar were nominated for the supporting roles from the movie while Hrithik Roshan was nominated as the lead role.
He said, “You are constantly hearing about some rat race and everybody is fighting each other to some kind of spot which does not exist. I mean the fact is you have to believe in yourself, you have to work sincerely, work hard, how many magazines covers you will do, whether you came on the front page of a magazine, or the front page of a newspaper. If that is your larger interest, I really feel that you are in the wrong profession. You’re not here for that. Have you come here to be an actor, director, singer, music composer, or have you come here to be a reality star? Have you come here to be just, I don’t know, a star?”
He further added, “I feel that’s a very personal thing. If in your personality you are constantly seeking validation for things, you will, there is no eventuality possible but disappointment. You may have a wonderful time for a while, but eventually, you will be disappointed because it is not possible to keep getting validation from other people.”
In the post which Abhay Deol shared on his Instagram, he wrote in the caption, “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’, released in 2011. I need to chant this title to me every day nowadays! Also, a great watch when anxious or stressed. I would like to mention that almost all the award functions demoted me and Farhan from main leads, and nominated us as “supporting actors”.
