The actor also lashes out on cops who arrested 40 people for indecent behaviour in public...
Abhay Deol has always been a hatke actor and a person. He loves to live his life and conduct his career on his own terms. His films have often been far removed from mainstream cinema and he prides on that. His offbeat performances have always been engaging. He is also outspoken and likes to speak his heart out. But his views on sex and the cops' drive to define 'indecent behavior in public' when the couples are in a hotel will blow your mind. He goes from accepting he enjoys sex to asking people to not make a brouhaha out of it!
Abhay writes on Facebook, "Even I am baffled by our society’s obsession with sex. I enjoy it, I crave it, I pursue it. I don’t hide the fact. I feel a tinge of shame admitting it. It always takes a moment for the logical part of my brain to put the shame aside, and I see reason. I have come to believe my sense of shame comes from my upbringing. I was brought up by the same values as any other from my country, which may come as a surprise to those who think people born into the film industry are brought up with a different set of values (usually loose and privileged). So I get it. The taboo that comes with the topic of sex in my society." He even dismissed popular belief that industry kids have a open minded approach to life which definitely is refreshing.
Abhay takes on the Police by saying, "But booking young kids for a crime they didn’t commit, physically and mentally abusing them publicly? To me it looks more like it was the police that was guilty of 'public indecency'. All this because they were young adults having sex. How liberated can you be!? They must be punished. By any law out there". The actor asks for a Principal policing rather than moral policing. He writes, "The last I remember, my country has a written history that is a few thousand years old. It is full of stories of kings and queens, of kingdoms and communities, coexisting mostly peacefully, with an invasion every now and then. People from all over the world converged upon my country, staking their claim, leaving their mark. The culture of the region however, always held onto its roots no matter who currently ruled it. That is how I see morals. They are relative to those who rule. Principles on the other hand, are unchangeable, they are at the root of my culture. That’s what I was taught, so If we have a ‘moral police’, then why not a ‘principal police’ as well? I guess I have resigned myself to a society mistaking itself to be the custodian of my culture".
Abhay winds up his long note with a song by Salt-N-Pepa called Let's Talk About Sex. Well, that's going to make many people talk about this post if not anything else!
