Mumbai, Feb 17 (IANS) Dev Benegal, who can't stop raving about Abhay Deol now, admits that initially he had rejected him for the role in 'Road, Movie'.

'My casting director had given me some pictures of Abhay long back, where he was shirtless and those were all posey glamorous pictures. I hated the pictures and told the casting director that I don't want this kind of hero for my film,' said Benegal.

'Later I met Abhay in New York and while having a conversation I realised how he completely fits in the character of Vishnu in 'Road, Movie'. He had that freshness and vulnerability that was required for Vishnu's character. Hence I decided to work with him. It was funny that he was the same guy, I rejected earlier,' he added.

Releasing March 5 here, 'Road, Movie' revolves around Vishnu (Abhay Deol), a young man desperate to escape a future working as a salesman for his father's hair oil business.

Women more efficient than men: Amitabh

Amitabh Bachchan, who teamed up with producer Ambika Hinduja and director Leena Yadav for 'Teen Patti', says he doesn't mind working under women as they are more capable than men.

Asked if there was any difference in working with an all women team, he said: 'There was no difference at all... Women are more efficient than men.'

Releasing Feb 26, the thriller is about greed and deception with the background of high-stake gambling. Apart from Amitabh in the lead, it also stars Sir Ben Kingsley, Raima Sen and Saira Mohan in important roles.

R. Madhavan and newcomers Siddharth Kher, Dhruv Ganesh, Vaibhav Talwar and Shraddha Kapoor also form a part of the cast.
