Dev D is a 2009 romantic black comedy film released in February 2009. The movie stars Abhay Deol, Mahee Gill and Kalki Kekrin.
In an interview with Mashable India, Abhay said: Literally hate fame and the media. Because as I grew up, I saw so much written about my family that when I was a kid I was asked, “Is that true, is that true?”.It pissed me off. “Your dad works in the movies. Your uncle is a big star. Obviously. Whatever was written about them, I was asked in school. I just don’t like it.” They weren’t friends around the family they knew was there to make a profit.”
Abhay describes his time in New York as follows: So for a year I did what Dev D did in the movies. I’m a little better than Dev. It’s not like I wore ragged clothes on the street. I drank like an idiot every day. I made some very good friends and I remember a few things. my life is crazy
