Abhay Deol Reveals Award Functions Demoted Him-Farhan Akhtar From Main Leads For Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara; Says He Boycotted But Farhan Was Ok
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara starring Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar, Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin was one of the best films in 2011. From the trio’s friendship, chemistry to Hrithik and Katrina’s sizzling chemistry, ZNMD was loved and appreciated by everyone. As we speak of this film, one of the leads, a gay Dell told his fans that he wants to chant this title ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ to himself every day nowadays as he also thinks that it is a great watch when anxious or stressed. After the words he mentioned in the caption, this has got us thinking if it refers to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death who died by suicide after battling with depression.

Sharing a still from the film, he wrote, “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara”, released in 2011. Need to chant this title to myself every day nowadays! Also, a great watch when anxious or stressed.” Moving on, his caption also focuses on the point or incident about the time when almost all the award functions demoted him and another lead Farhan Akhtar from main leads and nominated them in the ‘supporting actors’ category while Hrithik and Katrina were nominated for main leads.  

His caption further read, “I would like to mention that almost all the award functions demoted me and Farhan from main leads, and nominated us as “supporting actors”. Hrithik and Katrina were nominated as “actors in a leading role”. So by the industry’s own logic, this was a film about a man and a woman falling in love, with the man supported by his friends for whatever decisions he takes.”


He also mentioned how he boycotted award functions while Farhan was okay with it. “There are many covert and overt ways in which people in the industry lobby against you. In this case, it was shamelessly overt. I, of course, boycotted the awards but Farhan was ok with it. #familyfareawards Very creative artwork @kalakkii,” his note further read.
