Abhay Deol (born 15 March 1976) is an Indian film actor and producer. A member of Bollywood's Deol film dynasty, Deol has appeared in such films as Dev.D and Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!. He has been called "the new face of Indian cinema" and is portrayed as the thinking woman's sex symbol in the media.

His paternal uncle is famous veteran actor Dharmendra and his cousins are actors Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and actress Esha Deol.
Abhay Deol said in an interview with Rediff that he didn’t get into acting because of his famous uncle and his cousins but that he was involved in theatre in school. “At 18, I decided to take the plunge. It took me 10 years because I didn’t want to leave my education to get into films.

He made his film debut in the 2005 film Socha Na Tha which was produced by his uncle. The film got him good reviews for his performance but it did not well at the box office. His second film was Ahista Ahista in 2006 which was also a box office flop but also got him good critical reviews. His first 2007 release was Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd. which has a multi starcast and has emerged to be his first major box office success. His second 2007 release was Ek Chalis Ki Last Local which did average business at select multiplexes. His third film in 2007 Manorama Six Feet Under released on September 21, 2007 and was a disaster at the box office.

Deol divides his time between New York City and Mumbai. He is a self-described fan of "cinema that has the 'real' element" and lists his favourite films as Chupke Chupke, Mother India, and Dr. Strangelove.
