Chakravyuh has opened to a good response, but Abhay Deol, who plays an important role in the film about the Maoist movement, says he does not believe in critics’ ratings.

“There have been films with a lot of stars and people have liked them. But there have also been films, which have got a lot of stars from critics but people didn’t like them. I don’t believe in stars, I believe that the audience will watch what they want to,” Abhay told reporters at a theatre.

Abhay is glad that they could release a film like Chakravyuh on the mainstream platform.

“I am feeling extremely satisfied (with Chakravyuh). I am happy that people are liking it, I am happy that there have been good and bad reviews, I am happy that people are talking about it - whether they hated or loved it, but they are talking about it,” Abhay said.

“I am glad that we managed to make a film on such an issue today and have it out there on a mainstream platform with the press and people supporting it...feels good,” he added.

Chakravyuh is Abhay’s second film in a row that sees him in an intense role, but he says his next could be a romantic movie.

“I have been getting such characters, I liked them and I did them. But right now I don’t have much work, I haven’t accepted a lot of films but I may come up with a love story,” he said.

The 36-year-old is currently shooting for Rock The Shaadi with Genelia D’Souza, a zombie-comedy being directed by Navdeep Singh.
