Real-life couple Abhay Deol and Preeti Desai were spotted by the photogs outside PVR last night, where they had gone to catch a film. The two are currently gearing up for their first film together, a romcom titled One By Two – it’s Abhay’s debut project as a producer and he roped in Preeti for the film. Interestingly, he wasn’t supposed to be cast in the film at all!
Initially, the role was supposed to be done by someone else, but Abhay claims he fell in love with the character and therefore convinced his director to let him do it. That director in question is Devika Bhagat, who has written the screenplay for several films before, including Aisha and Jab Tak Hai Jaan – this will be her debut as a director.
Plus, Abhay says there’s one great track in the film that’s along the lines of Emotional Attyachar from Dev D, and he’s expecting it to be as big a rage with the youth.
Are you looking forward to seeing this off-screen couple on-screen?
