You must have loved his offbeat films, but Abhay Deol goes off the beaten path in real life, too.
And you don’t have to look far for it.
Go to his garage and you will see his Maruti jeep with the number plate reading: 420.
Yes, that’s Deol for you. Gives two hoots to an industry obsessed with numerology. Then again, his number adds up to 6, which is supposedly good numerologically. All multiples of three are much favoured by Bollywood actors while multiples of 4 are avoided like the plague.
Deol boy sure knows how to cock a snook at superstition and yet stay safe. After all, in the film industry, luck does play its part. Being on the right side helps always. But the only one to know how good or bad it has been is only AD. But he’s not telling.
