Known for his portrayal of complex characters in parallel cinema, Abhay Deol has announced a new kind of project of which he is a part of. Abhay Deol is ready to make his Disney debut but no one could ever imagine him in this role.

The actor has shared a small trailer of the new series, Spin set to release on Disney channel where he will be acting as a Dad. Actor Abhay Deol announced his upcoming project, Disney movie Spin, an English-language coming-of-age teen drama. The actor made the announcement on Instagram by sharing the film’s trailer and also writing a note about how Spin is a “departure” from the edge, alternative narratives that he is known for.

Abhay Deol also shared that Spin will first be available to only US audience, on Disney channel from August 13. “I am aware that most of my audience love me for making edgy, alternative narratives, that challenge the status quo. Which is why this film is all the more special as it is a departure from my own mainstream acting, and catering to a much younger audience.

“Spin is a Disney film which will go live on their platform for the US audiences on the 13th of August. It is a gem of a movie, that will leave you smiling and feeling good. Blessed to be a part of it!” Abhay wrote on his social media handle.

Spin is described as the story of an Indian American teen Rhea Kumar (Avantika Vandanapu), who discovers her artistic side through the unique world of DJ culture. Abhay plays Rhea’s father Arvind Kumar. The film has been helmed by Manjari Makijany from a script by Carley Steiner and Josh Cagan.

This is the first time that an actor his age is playing the character of a Dad that too on Disney channel.
