Recently he played one of the lead roles in the terrorist thriller Cleanskin, starring Sean Bean, Charlotte Rampling, James Fox, Michelle Ryan and Tuppence Middleton.
He gained a positive critical reception for his performance in this. Variety wrote 'Bean is as watchable as ever, as is the consistently impressive Galeya.' Screen International referred to Abhin Galeya as 'perhaps the real star of the film,' and also wrote 'Sean Bean and Abhin Galeya have the gravitas.' The Peoples Movies wrote 'Galeya embodies perfectly the two sides of his character. The Arts Desk wrote 'the enemies in this case are in the lean and brooding form of Ash (a powerful performance by Abhin Galeya). GQ wrote of the character Ash 'played by the scene stealing Abhin Galeya.'

Other film work includes starring opposite James Mcavoy, Paul Bettany and Kirsten Dunst in the film Wimbledon and playing the lead role in the indie feature The Blue Tower which went on to win the 'Best UK Feature' award at the 2008 Raindance Film Festival.

Peter Colt (Paul Bettany), a British professional tennis player in his thirties whose ranking has slipped from 11th to 119th in the world, considers that he never really had to fight for anything as his wealthy, but not close, family easily put him through studies and allowed him to pursue his tennis ambitions. He bravely exchanges jokes with his German sparring partner Dieter Prohl (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), who is in a similar position. Though he earns a wildcard spot to the Wimbledon tournament, he internally feels that it's time to admit he's getting too old to compete with fitter up and coming men (or boys) and intends, after this last Wimbledon, to take a job with the prestigious tennis club instead.
