Abhay, who is known for being selective with his offers, recently made his debut with Netflix’s original film, Chopsticks, where he was seen playing the role of a con man. In the actor's own words, "The digital space come from a space of encouraging artistes to be original. They have thrown in diversity into... when there was very little of it. They have already done that. It's a formula for them just as much as the formula for a lot of producers and studios in our country's Bollywood."
